WAND Legal Taxonomy - Updated!

As we have said before, laws are complicated. They are also necessary. So are the courts, law firms, and corporate legal departments that interpret those laws. The work that they do also generates documents - a lot of documents - and that's where the WAND Legal Taxonomy comes in.

The top-level terms in the WAND Legal Taxonomy are Contracts, Courts, Law Firm Management, Legal Practice Areas, and Litigation. In our latest review, we've also added Sources of Law.

In Contracts, Contract Parties has been expanded as has many areas of Bankruptcy in Legal Practice Areas. In Litigation, terms have been added to Courtroom Participants and Punishments. We have also added a list of Crimes in Criminal Law.

All areas of the taxonomy had additions made to both the terms and the synonyms. The taxonomy now has 3,631 terms and 1,868 synonyms.

The WAND Legal Taxonomy can be customized to include specific terms to meet the needs of any Lawyer, Law Firm, or Legal Department.

As with all WAND Taxonomies, the WAND Legal Taxonomy is available by itself or as part of the WAND Taxonomy Library Portal.
