For lawyers in private practice, corporate counsel, businesses, organizations, and government, we have a powerful subscriber edition built around our fully explorable law practice problem solving environment and intellectual capital system, Laugment.TM
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 September 30, 2017, Laugment knew more than 309,200 words and phrases. Because they are interconnected by 1.295 million 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 APPOINTS RANCOURT TO TENTH JUDICIAL DISTRICT
(St. Paul, MN) Governor Jesse Ventura today announced the appointment of Robert Rancourt to a new trial court judgeship in the Tenth Judicial District. This position is one of five new district court judgeships created by the 2001 Minnesota Legislature and the first of two new judgeships the Tenth Judicial District received. The Supreme Court certified the chambers of this judgeship for Center City in Chisago County. Thirty-five people applied for this position.
Rancourt is a solo practitioner in Lindstrom. He has been a self-employed attorney since 1979. He was assistant vice president of commercial lending at the Casco Bank and Trust Company in Portland, Maine in 1979 and an associate counsel with Space Center, Inc. in St. Paul from 1977 to 1979. Rancourt earned his juris doctorate degree from Hamline University Law School in St. Paul in 1976 and his bachelor of arts degree from the University of Miami in 1973.
"Sometimes a person fits a position," Governor Ventura said. "Bob fits this position like a glove. He has lived and worked in the Center City/Lindstrom community for over 20 years and has tried many cases in the Chisago County courthouse. Bob will not have a huge learning curve because of his knowledge of the court's caseload."
Rancourt is a member of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, the Minnesota Society for Criminal Justice and the Minnesota State Bar Association. He is also a volunteer youth baseball coach, a trustee for St. Bridget of Sweden Church and a volunteer speaker at high schools and grade schools.
Rancourt, 50, was born in Biddeford, Maine and resides in Lindstrom with his wife, Margaret. They have four children, Robert Jr., 24, Rebecca, 22, Joseph, 19, and Shawn, 14.
