Legal Knowledge Management

Marco Costa, Orlando Sousa, and José Neves

Knowledge in the legal domain assumes two distinct forms: case law and legislation. Case law complements legislation, and refers to the use of cases decided in court to provide interpretations to subjective aspects of the legislation. These cases are used as guidance in future similar cases. This paper presents a Case-Based Reasoning (CBR) system that establishes legal case-bases, allowing the users to find and retrieve information on cases similar to current ones.
