Abstract

LAT allows a user to analyze legislation and other documents produced by policy makers allowing quantitative consistent comparisons of different struggles and arguments. Its powerful mining techniques are based on predefined and user rules that can be saved as templates to support any future analysis. It comes with sample legislation with various national and USA state constitutions. You can use the Internet to find other legislation and constitutions and bring them into LAT for your studies. You can save your results and distribute them to others for review and comparison.

LAT is for every legislator and government representative on earth. As they ponder their actions and seal their role in history. As they create legislation and serve the forces they decide to serve.

LAT is for every teacher and student in every country on earth. If you are able to use an Internet search engine you are able to use LAT. So children can use it in their history and social studies classes.

LAT is for every professor and advanced student in every country on earth. It allows the serious academic to ruthlessly slice through text and provide quantitative results of your study. It helps to remove the bias of your cultural and educational past.

LAT is for every human on earth. To help them understand their history and the history of their fellow humans on earth. To help remind them of the struggles and great dreams or nightmares of their ancestors as they engage in their lives.
