Create an Everlaw Account and Edit User Settings

Account invite email

In order to access a project, you must be invited to a project by an existing user or by Everlaw support. For instructions on how to add users to the platform, visit this help article

When someone has invited you to a project, regardless of whether you are a new or existing user, you will receive an email.  

If you are a new user, you will receive an email with the subject line: “[Everlaw] You have been granted access…” The email will look like this: 


If you'd like to create a new Everlaw account, click “I’m new to Everlaw.” If you are being invited to create a new account, but you'd like to log in with an existing one, click “I have an Everlaw account.” 

If you are an existing user being added to a project, the subject line will start with: “[Everlaw] You have been added to…” and you can click "Log in to Everlaw." 


Account invite emails are generated uniquely for your email address. If you forward this email to someone else, they will not be able to use it to create an account.

I’m new to Everlaw

If you are new to Everlaw, you will be taken to a landing page to set up your profile. Your username or email will be used to log into your account. Your title is optional and can be something like your job function or professional role. Your password must be at least 8 characters. Finally, you should have received an eight digit authentication token in your email. Copy and paste that code into the Authentication Token section. If you did not receive the token or the first one expired, you can click the “resend” icon to the right of the input box.


When you have completed all required steps, click Create Account. 

Once you click Create Account, you will be taken to the project you were initially invited to. You can go back to review and edit your profile by clicking your name in the top right of the homepage. To log out, click Log Out in the top right.

I have an Everlaw account

If you have an Everlaw account, you will be taken to the login page, unless you are already logged in and your password is saved. If you need to log in, you may be required to enter a multi-factor authentication token first.

Once you log in, you will be taken straight to the homepage of the project you were invited to.

Edit user profile or security settings

You can edit your user profile by logging into your account, then clicking your designated first name in the top right of the screen.  Here, you can edit the following user settings: 

  • Name (first and last)
  • Email address
  • Title (optional)
  • Current password

You can view, but not edit, your username and the organization you belong to. 

Click the blue Edit button and then edit the fields that you wish to change. To save any changes, you must enter your current password first. If you're creating a new password, note that all passwords must be at least 8 characters long. 

In addition to editing user settings, you can edit security and authentication settings here too. For more information about user-level authentication settings, visit this article
