Balazs Ratai, Carneades Consulting, has published Legal Semantic Frames - A Short Analysis of the Nature of Legal Understanding in volume 22 of Jusletter IT (February 2011). Here is the abstract.
The paper is a preliminary study of questions relating to the possibility of using semantic frames as means of machine understanding in the legal domain. The paper focuses on the question whether we can talk about legal semantic frames or not and therefore examines how understanding can be understood in the legal domain. In other words it focuses on what legal understanding is and what specialities it has if any. Additionally some conclusions relating to the possibility of using semantic frames in the legal domain will be drawn.Download the paper from SSRN at the link.
