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 BASKFIELD TO FIFTH JUDICIAL DISTRICT
(St. James, MN) Governor Jesse Ventura today announced the appointment of Allison Krehbiel Baskfield to a Fifth Judicial District trial court bench vacancy in the city of St. James in Watonwan County. The opening will occur with the retirement of the Honorable Terry Dempsey on February 28, 2002. Sixteen people applied for this vacancy.
Baskfield is an assistant Fifth Judicial District public defender in Madelia, a position she has held since 1999. She was an assistant Minneapolis city attorney and legal advisor to the Minneapolis Police Department from 1995 to 1998, acting deputy Minneapolis city attorney in 1995 an assistant Minneapolis city attorney from 1992 to 1995, and an associate attorney with the Minneapolis law firm of LaBore and Juliano in 1992. Baskfield earned her juris doctorate degree cum laude from William Mitchell College of Law in St. Paul in 1991 and her bachelor of arts degree from the University of Minnesota in 1984. She also did some undergraduate coursework at the University of Houston in Houston, Texas.
"Allison brings the right mix of background and personal qualities to this judgeship," Governor Ventura said. "She has been a criminal defender in rural Minnesota and a prosecutor in the city. She has a no nonsense style but brings a sensitivity to ethnic and cultural issues. And, having grown up on a farm, Allison is not afraid of hard work."
While in the Minneapolis City Attorney's office, Baskfield taught Criminal Constitutional Law, Employment Law, Sexual Harassment and Civil Liability to Minneapolis Police Officers. She also taught a course on Domestic Assault and Loss of Firearms and published an article on "The New Domestic Abuse Law: Officers without Weapons" for the National Association of Chiefs of Police. Baskfield's community activities include serving on the Watonwan County Library Board and coaching Madelia summer recreational youth programs.
Baskfield, 40, was born in Freeman, South Dakota, grew up in Mountain Lake, and resides in Madelia with her husband, Patrick. They have three daughters.
