This background paper outlines the participation by the authors and other colleagues in the previous wave of enthusiasm, particularly from the early 1980s, for AI-based solutions to legal problems, then generally referred to as ‘legal expert systems’. As ‘the DataLex Project, we were active participants, both academically (research and teaching) and commercially, from 1984 to 2001. The DataLex Project continues, after a hiatus, and current work on the Project’s tools is noted briefly. The purpose of this background paper is to provide a convenient reference to the original DataLex Project, its participants and its publications.
