Getting started

Our API gives you the ability to integrate with Legal Monster and automate your compliance.

JSON is returned by all API responses, including errors.


We use a simple API key as the authentication for our API. Include the API key as a header in the requests give you access to use the API. We have a few API calls that don't require an API key as they are public API's, these require a project_public_key instead. On all API resources we have specified what key are required to authenticate the API.

Pass the API key with the x-api-key header:

x-api-key: 3NmuXfi3Qt94t1Y8ZkoUzrzs

You can obtain a API key in the settings tab in Legal Monster, well - right here.

Access the API
