    The JCMT Legacy Survey (JLS) is an ambitious programme that will provide the first large-scale survey of the submillimetre sky. From planetary science through to cosmology, the first phase of the campaign will be using the continuum instrument SCUBA-2 and the imaging spectrometer HARP to obtain over 100 Terabytes of raw data. We present our ongoing work to provide a Science Archive aimed at both survey and individual users for the distribution of raw data, processed data, advanced data products and VO integration.
