I am trying to cite this page in MLA: https://www.law.cornell.edu/wex/obscenity

Since it lists no authors, what should I put as the in-text citation. Should I use the Legal Information Institute or should I omit an author and just use Obscenity?

Also, this is what my works cited citation looks like. Is this correct?

"Obscenity." Obscenity. Legal Information Institute, n.d. Web. Apr. 2015.

In MLA citation, the author is put before the website.

Lastname, Firstname. "Title." Website Title (Italics). Publisher, Date Month Year of publication. Web. Date month year of access. 

If there is no author, just omit the author and begin the citation with "Title.
