An epistemological 5GL shell, eGanges, recently short-listed for the British Computer Society's Machine Intelligence Competition 2007, is a computational development of J. Wisdom's (1951) chair of legal reasoning. Its four legs are represented as (1) legal ontology (legal concepts), (2) deduction (rule reasoning), (3) induction (case spectra ' analogy and iteration)), and (4) abduction (rule justification); but it has two user-friendly additions: (5) a seat (a minimalistic interface) and (6) a back (backend combinatoric heuristics).Aristotelian prior analytics are required to construct applications from black letter law. Once constructed, an undergraduate business student survey shows, the eGanges visualisation of rules as River maps, is a welcome knowledge management aid. These River maps use the same extended deduction paradigm as Ishikawa quality control fishbones that were so successful after the second world war in producing high quality Japanese manufacturing. In eGanges, quality control is a chair of artificial legal intelligence.
