Lexum provides turn-key SaaS solutions for the producers and managers of legal information, as well as acquisition, digitization, identification, conversion and publication services for legislation, case law, by-laws, regulations, CLE materials and more.

The forerunner of Lexum was founded in 1993 as the Law Gopher server at the Université de Montréal. This site was both, respectively, the first available legal resources site in Canada and in French.
