If you squint a bit to round off the details, you might see a legal system as one document after another. From agreements among individuals and businesses to interactions with government agencies and the courts, nearly everything that is legal is done as documents.

Now imagine that instead of documents, the system is dots connected by lines. Dots that represent persons, places, properties, agencies and types of transactions. Lines that represent relationships.

By accumulating uses and combining reports from users and public data, it would soon be possible to show best paths and predict outcomes.

This is a natural fit with:
