Abstract:

Legal reasoning is viewed here as a complex problem-solving task to which the techniques of artificial intelligence programming may be applied. Some existing programs are discussed which successfully attack various aspects of the problem, in this and other task domains. It remains an open question, to be answered by intensive research, whether computers can be programmed to do creative legal reasoning. Regardless of the answer, it is argued that much will be gained by the research. Author
