This book compiles the experience of the largest project in knowledge-based systems and the law yet undertaken. It provides an in-depth introduction to representation of law in computer programs, as well as more advanced discussion and description of large knowledge-based systems building, legal representation, cooperative work, and interface design in the context of the project.
- Describes the world's largest KBS and law project
- Contains an authoritative survey of approaches to legal knowledge representation
- Outlines several prototype systems
- Discusses the integration of KBS and law issues with HCI and social implications
Researchers, graduate students, and professionals in artificial intelligence, particularly those interested in artificial intelligence for government, large-scale knowledge-based systems, and legal- and case-based reasoning
