                                   AGREEMENT


THIS AGREEMENT entered into on this 1st day of July, 1998, by and between Law
Office Information Systems, Inc., hereinafter referred to as LOIS, and Infocon
International Limited, of Bangalore, India, hereinafter referred to as INFOCON,
do hereby agree and covenant as follows:

WHEREAS, both LOIS and INFOCON desire to enter into an agreement between
themselves, the subject matter of which is outlined in Purchase Order #00000208,
attached hereto, whereby INFOCON shall produce various Electronic Materials for
LOIS;

WHEREAS, LOIS is willing to pay INFOCON for the production of certain Electronic
Materials, both in the conversion of Raw Materials and the formatting of
Electronic Materials, if said materials meet or exceed certain requirements;

NOW THEREFORE, for and in the consideration of the mutual promises and other
good and valuable consideration, the adequacy of which is herein acknowledged,
LOIS and INFOCON do hereby agree as follows:

                                       I.
                                  DEFINITIONS

The following terms as set forth herein shall have the following meaning as the
same are understood within the English language:

'Raw Materials' -- Raw Materials shall be understood to mean that materials used
for conversion into an electronic format.  Raw Materials shall generally consist
of legal materials or legally related materials.  Raw Materials can be in the
form of print which are usually contained within a compiled format and bound
together, in the form of both soft and hard bound books, pamphlets, folders, and
the like.  The legal materials can also be in an electronic form in a variety of
formats.  In such cases, the legal materials shall be handled as if they were
printed materials.

'Electronic Materials' -- Electronic Materials shall be understood to mean Raw
Materials that have been keyed (or otherwise converted); formatted in accordance
with specified requirements; and supplied with all appropriate Coding
Information and Emphasis Tags as specified.

'Coding Information' -- Coding Information, commonly called 'fielding' or
'tagged data' is used to identify and separate certain sections of Electronic
Materials.

'Quality Standards' -- Quality Standards shall mean Electronic Materials that
are accurately converted to Ninety Nine and Nine Hundred Ninety Five Percent
(99.995%) of the Raw materials.

'Measured Quality Standards' -- Measured Quality Standards is the method used to
determine Quality Standards.  Upon the receipt of Electronic Materials sent by
INFOCON to LOIS, LOIS shall select a 100 page continuous block of information,
(or as many 100 page blocks as LOIS desires) and compare the Raw Materials to
the Electronic Materials.  Accuracy of the conversion is checked by counting the
total number of characters within said 100 page block(s) and the number of
occurrences where the Raw Materials do not

                                      -1-

 
match the Electronic Materials. The total characters contained within a given
100 page block of Electronic Materials shall then be divided by the total
characters of Electronic Materials converted incorrectly to determine the
Quality Standard. The results of the quality check shall be immediately sent to
INFOCON if the materials do not meet Quality Standards. INFOCON shall then check
its copy of the Electronic Materials to ascertain the veracity of said quality
check. It is understood by both INFOCON and LOIS, that the accuracy level of any
100 page block so chosen by LOIS, shall be deemed to be that of the entire
amount of Electronic Materials for that project. It shall be understood that in
the event that LOIS fails to make a quality check within 30 days of having
received the Electronic Materials, it shall be considered that said Electronic
Materials have met Quality Standards.

It is understood between the parties that when Measured Quality Standards are
being determined, any character which is emphasized or effected by an emphasis
tag, (SGML character) is in fact emphasized or affected in a manner not
consistent with the Raw Materials, then and in that event, all characters
contained within the emphasized or affected characters shall be deemed not be
accurately converted.  It is also understood, that when a character or
characters are emphasized or affected in the Raw Materials but not so affected
or emphasized in the Electronic Materials, then and in that event, all
characters that should have been emphasized or affected in the Electronic
Materials shall be deemed not to be accurately converted.

                                      II.
                     PURCHASE ORDER AND PAYMENT PROCEDURES

LOIS shall send Raw Materials to INFOCON.  Upon receipt of the Raw Materials,
INFOCON shall provide LOIS with an inventory within 7 days of the Raw Materials
received.  Upon receipt of the inventory, LOIS shall then issue a Purchase Order
along with an Irrevocable Standby Letter of Credit as to the Raw Materials that
it desires INFOCON to convert into Electronic Materials.  LOIS may not require
INFOCON to convert more than 1 billion characters of Raw Materials per month,
and INFOCON may not require LOIS to accept more than 1 billion characters of
Electronic Materials per month.  However, it is understood that the 1 billion
characters may be composed of a single Purchase Order, or multiple Purchase
Orders, at the sole discretion of LOIS.

The value of the Irrevocable Standby Letter of Credit shall equal the total
value of converting all Raw Materials listed on the Purchase Order into
Electronic Materials at a rate of * per one thousand characters converted into
Quality Standards. From the date of issue of the Irrevocable Standby Letter of
Credit, INFOCON shall then begin to convert the Raw Materials into Electronic
Materials at Quality Standards.

Upon completion of converting all Raw Materials listed on a given Purchase
Order, INFOCON shall promptly send said Electronic Materials to LOIS so that
LOIS can determine Quality Standards.  Once the Quality Standards and the timing
of the delivery of the Electronic Materials are determined, LOIS shall inform
its Bank, and shall pay for the materials as set forth below.

.    If the Electronic Materials are: (1) delivered to LOIS at LOIS headquarters
     before or on the 60th day after the posting of the Irrevocable Standby
     Letter of Credit and; (2) said Electronic Materials are in compliance with
     Quality Standards, LOIS shall pay to INFOCON in a manner set forth below an
     amount equal to * per 1000 (one thousand) characters converted from Raw
     Materials into Electronic Materials.

.    If the Electronic Materials are: (1) delivered to LOIS at LOIS headquarters
     between the 61st and 75th day after the posting of the Irrevocable
     Standby Letter of Credit and; (2) said Electronic Materials

* Certain information on this page has been omitted and filed separately with 
the Securities and Exchange Commission. Confidential treatment has been 
requested with respect to the omitted portions.

                                      -2-

 
     are in compliance with Quality Standards, LOIS shall pay to INFOCON in a
     manner set forth below an amount equal to * per 1000 (One Thousand)
     Characters converted from Raw Materials into Electronic Materials.

.    If the Electronic Materials are (1) delivered to LOIS at LOIS headquarters
     between the 76th and 90th day after the posting of the Irrevocable
     Standby Letter of Credit and; (2) said Electronic Materials are in
     compliance with Quality Standards, LOIS shall pay to INFOCON in a manner
     set forth below an amount equal to * per 1000 (One Thousand) Characters
     converted from Raw Materials into Electronic Materials.

.    If the Electronic Materials are: (1) delivered to LOIS at LOIS headquarters
     on the 91st day or later after the posting of the Irrevocable Standby
     Letter of Credit and; (2) said Electronic Materials are in compliance with
     Quality Standards, LOIS shall pay to INFOCON in a manner set forth below an
     amount equal to * per 1000 (One Thousand) Characters converted from Raw
     Materials into Electronic Materials. In addition, however, LOIS shall
     charge to INFOCON a late delivery penalty and deduct from INFOCON an amount
     of * per day first beginning on the 91st day and continuing each day until
     the Electronic Materials are received by LOIS at LOIS headquarters and said
     Electronic Materials meet Quality Standards. In the unlikely event that the
     late penalty exceeds the overall value of the Electronic Materials
     delivered, then LOIS shall deduct the remaining balance of the late
     delivery penalty on future deliveries of Electronic Materials.

It is understood by and between the parties that after INFOCON has delivered the
Electronic Materials to LOIS and during the time to which LOIS is determining
Quality Standards by the utilization of Measured Quality Standards, that said
time period for measuring quality standards shall not count as against INFOCON.
For example: LOIS receives the Electronic Materials from INFOCON on day 60.  For
a period of 10 days LOIS ascertains Quality Standards and notified INFOCON on
day 10 that Quality Standards have not been met.  INFOCON re-delivers the
Electronic Materials 15 days later.  LOIS then ascertains that Quality Standards
have been met after 10 more days. Under this example the understanding of the
parties would be that INFOCON delivered the Electronic Materials that met
Quality Standards on day 75 and therefore would be paid * per 1000 (One
Thousand) Characters converted from Raw Materials into Electronic Materials in
the manner set forth below.

For every delivery of Quality Standard Electronic Materials, LOIS shall make 12
equal payments in an amount set forth above with the first payment beginning six
(6) months after delivery. Under no circumstances shall LOIS pay more than * per
month for 12 consecutive months on any single Quality Standard Electronic
Materials delivery, although there may be times when subsequent Quality Standard
Electronic Material payments are running concurrent with previous Quality
Standard Electronic Material payments.

It is understood between the parties that if and in the event that the timing of
the delivery of the Electronic Materials exceeds 61 days, then LOIS may modify
its Irrevocable Standby Letter of Credit from the total value of * per 1000
characters to * per 1000 characters. If and in the event that the timing of the
delivery of the Electronic Materials exceeds 76 days, then LOIS may modify its
Irrevocable Standby Letter of Credit from the total value of * per 1000
characters to * per 1000 characters.

* Certain information on this page has been omitted and filed separately with 
the Securities and Exchange Commission. Confidential treatment has been 
requested with respect to the omitted portions.

       supercede the Basic Editing Guide. It shall be understood that not all
       issues can be addressed in the instruction sheet for that project, or the
       Basic Editing Guide. When there are issues in question or inconsistencies
       contact LOIS for clarification. Any discussion concerning an issue shall
       be followed by a statement in writing from INFOCON to LOIS, setting forth
       INFOCON's understanding of how to deal with the issue or inconsistency.
       Failure to contact LOIS regarding an issue in question shall leave the
       interpretation of said issue solely up to LOIS. Said interpretation shall
       apply when evaluating Quality Standards.
