It's an advanced lawyer augmentation system.
Laugment provides advanced, easy-to-use law practice thinking architecture via your desktop or handheld device browser.
As of November 2018, Laugment knew 336,000 words and phrases. Because they are interconnected by 1,418,000 smart relationships, Laugment functions as an intellectual network extending your own mind. It also serves as a dynamic semantically-powered gateway to the best of the larger legal Web. If you don't have scores of dedicated knowledge management lawyers working on your behalf -- or, frankly, even if you do -- you need Laugment.
As a lawyer, you need an advanced lawyer-built law practice knowledge assistant / electronic mentor in myriad ways in your daily practice. But until Laugment came on the scene, the Legal Web had no semantic "brain" to make it more useful to practicing lawyers. The empty search box can't do what Laugment can do - make your most valuable asset -- your legal mind -- sharper, quicker, and more creative than ever. How? By functioning as an "intellectual prosthesis" magnifying your law practice mind through years of law practice modeling and legal transactive memory effects. Here's what others have said.
If you're a client, if you hire outside counsel, let's talk about how we can mutually support your law firms' step up to 21st century-style law practice.
Disclaimer: Laugment is not intended to substitute for a lawyer but rather to magnify the powers of smart people and improve the lawyering process.

GOVERNOR VENTURA REAPPOINTS TOUSSAINT CHIEF JUDGE OF THE COURT OF APPEALS
(St. Paul, MN) Governor Jesse Ventura today announced the reappointment of the Honorable Edward Toussaint, Jr. as Chief Judge of the Minnesota Court of Appeals. Judge Toussaint will serve another three-year term as chief judge expiring on October 31, 2004.
Toussaint has served as a judge of the Court of Appeals since March 1995 and as chief judge since April 1995. He was a district court judge in the Fourth Judicial District in Hennepin County from 1992 to 1995, a judge of the Workers' Compensation Court of Appeals from 1987 to 1992, a Workers' Compensation Judge from 1981 to 1987, a claims counsel for American Family Insurance Group from 1975 to 1981 as well as an attorney for N.E.W.S. Realty from 1978 to 1981 and a junior high school science teacher in Chicago from 1964 to 1975.
Toussaint earned his juris doctorate degree from DePaul University College of Law in Chicago in 1974 and his bachelor of science degree in education from Chicago State University in 1964. Toussaint, 60, was born in Louisiana and resides in St. Louis Park.
"Under Judge Toussaint's leadership, the Minnesota Court of Appeals has become a model court among appellate-level courts in the United States in its handling of cases," Governor Ventura said. "Judge Toussaint's use of technology and his personal style of working together as a court and communicating with each other has resulted in more consistent opinions from the court. I am comfortable that Judge Toussaint will continue to be an effective leader of the Court of Appeals during the next three years and maintain its status as one of the best-run appellate courts in the country."
The Minnesota Court of Appeals has jurisdiction of appeals from all final decisions of trial courts other than conciliation courts except for appeals in certain election contests, convictions of murder in the first degree, and appeals from the Workers' Compensation Court of Appeals and the Tax Court. The Court of Appeals consists of 16 judges; eight at-large seats and eight seats designated for each of the state's congressional districts. The governor designates one of the judges as chief judge.
