We are developing LESTER (Legal Expert System for Termination of Employment Review), a case-based reasoning program to advise in the area of unjust discharge from employment under collective bargaining agreements. LESTER uses paradigm cases to reason in a legal domain that is not governed by a strong concept of precedent. This paper describes the domain and gives an overview of the current version of the program.
