Just about any lawyer who's spent more than three minutes online knows that Cornell Law School's Legal Information Institute site is fantastic.

Next week another 265 law students will bookmark the Cornell LII and law library homepage. You are making a significant contribution to legal education and to our access to information. As a fellow educator, I'm extremely grateful (as my students will be also).

I just wanted to thank you for your on-line law library. We are a small law firm in north-central Texas and rarely need federal law, but when we do, I know exactly where to come. Your on-line U.S. Code is wonderful; the current format is very user friendly. Thank you!

I'm not a student. I'm not a lawyer. I'm not a college graduate. I'm just a lower-middle-income-class working grunt. I've never seen the inside of a law library (except on L.A. Law, of
course. :-)) and would never consider entering one because I find it so intimidating…. Because of your site and your work, I've read more of the US Code in the past 6 months than I had ever even contemplated reading before in my 36 years on this planet.
So, thank you. You're doing a great service here. You're following the true philosophy of education.
