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 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 APPOINTS SCHERER TO SEVENTH JUDICIAL DISTRICT
(St. Paul, MN) Governor Jesse Ventura today announced the appointment of John Scherer to a Seventh District trial court bench vacancy. This position is one of five new district court judgeships created by the 2001 Minnesota Legislature. The Supreme Court certified the chambers of this judgeship, which takes effect January 1, 2003, for the city of Little Falls in Morrison County. Eighteen people applied for this judicial position.
Scherer is a shareholder with the St. Cloud law firm of Rajkowski Hansmeier, Ltd. He has been an attorney with the firm and its predecessor, Donohue, Rajkowski and Hansmeier since 1981. Scherer earned his juris doctorate degree cum laude from William Mitchell College of Law in St. Paul in 1981 and his bachelor of arts degree cum laude from St. John's University in Collegeville in 1977.
"John is the total package. He excelled in school, has a great reputation as a lawyer and has been active in the community as well as in legal associations," Governor Ventura said. "He is ideally-suited to be a judge."
Scherer volunteers with the Central Minnesota Legal Services Volunteer Attorney Program, and received its 2002 Seventh District Volunteer Attorney of the Year award. He is also active in the Minnesota State Bar Association, Stearns/Benton County Bar Association and the Minnesota Defense Lawyers Association, where he served as president. Scherer has also been a high school mock trial judge and a volunteer teacher and coach with the St. John's and St. Benedict's College mock trial teams and was the founder and coach of the St. Cloud Youth Hockey Association's girl's hockey program.
Scherer, 47, was born in Minneapolis and lives in St. Cloud with his wife, Jane. They have three children, Troy, 24, Ben, 20 and Liz, 18.
