Legal Help Online Cohort

We launched our first Legal Help Online Cohort in November 2021.

The cohort helps local leaders to get technical assistance and a supportive community in making their legal help website more visible to people searching for online legal help.

New members are still welcome to join!

Are you responsible for managing self-help or legal assistance portals? Does your organization have pages that offer legal help guides and resources for the public?

Millions of searches for legal information and assistance occur each year. Too often, websites administered by courts or legal aids do not feature prominently in search results. The Stanford Legal Design Lab is recruiting a cohort of organizations who manage these sites to improve their search engine optimization or SEO in an attempt to improve their search engine rankings. 

In the Legal Help Online Cohort, our Lab team offers guidance, technical assistance, and a peer network to help you understand your site’s current rankings and issues — and then transform it with new technology, design, and content techniques. You should see your search placement go up, and your content features more prominently on search engine results pages.
