Professor Guido Boella of Università degli Studi di Torino Dipartimento di Informatica , Dr. Guido Governatori of the NICTA Queensland Research Laboratory, and colleagues, presented A Formal Study on Legal Compliance and Interpretation, at NMR 2010: The 13th International Workshop on Non-Monotonic Reasoning, held 14-16 May 2010, at Sutton Place, Toronto, Canada.
Here is the abstract of the paper:
This paper proposes a logical framework to capture the norm change power and the limitations of the judicial system in revising the set of constitutive rules defining the concepts on which the applicability of norms is based. In particular, we reconstruct the legal arguments leading to an extensive or restrictive interpretation of norms.
