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.
