Lawyer’s Professional Assistant App

The Lawyer’s Professional Assistant App from Wolfram Alpha has a variety of helpful information and tools for legal professionals and law students.  For instance, it contains a legal dictionary; information about the statutes of limitations in each state; an overview of the different types of visas; financial tools for calculating fees, settlements, and tax rates; a calendar computation tool; and damages and estate planning computation tools.  It also has information on crime rates, demographics, and companies.

This app costs $4.99 to download and is available for iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch.  More information about the app can be found on the Wolfram Alpha website as well as the iTunes store.
