Abstract

A commonly voiced notion is that the practice of law is quite similar in many respects to the playing of chess. Akin to how chess players need to devise their moves and anticipate countermoves, so do attorneys need to compose arguments and be ready for counterarguments. We consider that AI chess-playing systems indeed provide insights that can be leveraged toward crafting AI-based legal reasoning systems.
