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 July 2019, Laugment knows 348,000 words and phrases. Because they are interconnected by 1,474,000 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 along, the Legal Web had no "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 providing you with a functioning "intellectual exoskeleton" magnifying your law practice mind -- one based on years of law practice modeling and real time legal transactive memory effects.
And if you're an institutional client, or an in-house lawyer who hires outside counsel, let's talk about how we can mutually support your law firms' leap into 21st century-style value-magnified law practice.
Disclaimer: Laugment is not intended to substitute for a lawyer but rather to amplify the powers of smart people in real time and improve the lawyering process.

GOVERNOR APPOINTS MARK TO FIRST JUDICIAL DISTRICT
(St. Paul, MN) Governor Jesse Ventura today announced the appointment of Kevin Mark to a First Judicial District trial court bench vacancy. This position is the fifth of five new district court judgeships created by the 2001 Minnesota Legislature. The Supreme Court certified the chambers of this judgeship, which takes effect on January 1, 2003, for the city of Red Wing in Goodhue County. 31 people applied for this judicial position.
Mark has been a self-employed attorney in Red Wing since 1995. He was an attorney with the Holst, Vogel, Erdmann and Vogel law firm in Red Wing from 1979 to 1995, as an associate attorney from 1979 to 1985 and a partner from 1985 to 1995. Mark earned his juris doctorate degree from Marquette University Law School in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 1979 and his bachelor of arts degree from Minnesota State University, Mankato (then known as Mankato State University) magna cum laude in 1975.
"When I asked Kevin why he wanted to be a judge, he told me that he has a strong belief in public service and that as a judge he can have a positive impact in the community," Governor Ventura said. "Kevin has demonstrated a commitment to public service in his work on the Red Wing School Board and the many other civic organizations he has been a part of in Red Wing. I know he will carry this commitment to public service with him to the bench."
Mark has been a member of the Red Wing School Board since 1985 and chair since 1993. He is also chair of the Red Wing Joint Powers Board and president of the Hedin-Hartnagel Memorial Fund Board of Directors.
