Abstract

In language technology, the process of turning language analysis tools into language checkers offers a viable model for the development of decision support or judicial automation tools based on current software for electronic discovery. This paper presents arguments for why the cases are more analoguous than one might think and based on that presents some lessons learned from normative language technology and the implications they might have for AI software projects in a judicial setting.

Keywords: e-discovery, judicial decision support, judicial automation, language technology, language checking, normativity, project management
