Trevor Bench-Capon, Giovanni Sartor
2003 Artificial Intelligence  
Reasoning with cases has been a primary focus of those working in AI and law who have attempted to model legal reasoning.  ...  A better way of seeing reasoning with cases is to see it as a process of constructing and using a theory.  ...  Acknowledgements This paper is a revised and much extended version of Bench-Capon and Sartor [8] .  ...

The Logic of Showing Possibility Claims

Kenneth Einar Himma
2014 Revus  
With these preliminaries in mind, the model of a legal system incorporating moral criteria of legality can be developed as follows -subject to the following conditions and assumptions.  ...  Accordingly, the "authority" of such a system, for that reason, simply could not be a legal authority, on Raz's own theory of law and authority.  ...

Legal Theory and Legal Education - the Next Step

Charles Sampford, David Wood
1989 Legal education review  
Moral reasoning is not just the basis of legal reasoning, but is often explicitly incorporated into legal decision making.  ...  One of the consequences of the disordered and conflicting nature of law is that law as a whole does not incorporate any specific set of values but a profusion of them.  ...

Using Machine Learning to Guide Cognitive Modeling: A Case Study in Moral Reasoning [article]

Mayank Agrawal, Joshua C. Peterson, Thomas L. Griffiths
2019 arXiv   pre-print
In this paper, we outline a data-driven, iterative procedure that allows cognitive scientists to use machine learning to generate models that are both interpretable and accurate.  ...  The recently released Moral Machine dataset allows us to build a powerful model that can predict the outcomes of these conflicts while remaining simple enough to explain the basis behind human decisions  ...  This model was trained on the dataset to infer the values of u and λ.  ...
