Law Ruler Cloud is the most commonly requested installation of Law Ruler legal case intake software, and runs over the Internet in ANY browser on Mac or PC, with nothing installed on your local computer. It offers the ultimate in mobility, runs on many devices and requires very little IT knowledge, maintenance, or infrastructure at your law office. Both types of implementation are paid for by a low monthly subscription.

You can even build your own applications from our database with the On-Premise solution.
