What is Cornell University and what is Legal Information Institute (LII)?
The Legal Information Institute (https://www.law.cornell.edu) was founded in 1992 to address a simple but important problem: people should be able to find and understand the laws that affect them. In the 25 years since, we have used technology to make law more accessible to millions of people from around the world. Last year, our services were used by more than 32 million people in 246 countries and territories.
We are a small, highly collaborative research, engineering, and editorial group housed at the Cornell Law School in Ithaca, NY. Our collaborators include publishers, legal scholars, computer scientists, government agencies, and other groups and individuals that promote open access to law, worldwide. We bring a rich diversity of backgrounds and experience to our work, and we relish a good challenge.
Cornell University, unique among peers, is the federal land-grant institution of New York State, a private endowed university, and a member of the Ivy League. Working at a university gives us unique learning and research opportunities, and long-term, our University affiliation has helped us balance our passion for innovation with a commitment to sustainability.
