Joomla! is the worlds 2nd largest Content Management System. The Joomla software is purely Open Source (GPL v2.0) created by volunteers from around the world. As an all-volunteer non-profit organization, Joomla is managed through working groups staffed by members of the Joomla Community.

The Legal Working Group is tasked with helping the Board sustain the legal health of the project. This includes licensing of the business and the software, deal making and contracting, risk management and resolving claims and disputes. While the tasks are infrequent, when we have issues we need a variety of resources from business people that can help negotiate and review contracts, to volunteers with legal training that provide assistance in minimizing our formal legal costs, particularly in countries other than the U.S..

This working group is organized in two sub-teams. One being Contributors located around the world that will be on-call to assist us with document translations and learning about local business customs and regulations. The other sub-team are Members that are willing to meet regularly and devote hours each month to actively participating in forming legal relationships, contracting and monitoring legal compliance.
