Abstract

This was the most comprehensive developer's manual for legal expert systems application development using the Wysh version of the DataLex Project inferencing software (Ysh), which from 1995 was developed by AustLII to work in the web environment, integrated with the legal texts on the AustLII by automated hypertext linking and text retrieval.

The theory behind the Wysh approach is set out in 'Controlling and augmenting legal inferencing: ysh, a case study' (1993):
