Abstract

This working paper charts the development of default logic as a paradigm for analysing some aspects of legal reasoning, especially fact-finding. This paradigm highlights the need for a standardisation in the representation of legal reasoning in order to guide empirical research and to open legal thinking and decisions up to immediate access through artificial intelligence software. The implication tree model presented here has the potential to transform legal practice and education, and thus could be essential in the future development of the law.
