On the relation between legal language and legal argument :

Abstract

This paper investigates how the logical aspects of legal language determine possibilities to attack and defend arguments in a dispute. An argumentation framework in logic-programming style is presented which can cope with the interplay between assumptions, applicability statements and reasoning about preference relations between norms. The theory is given a solid semantic foundation, and can be used to formalise a wide range of realistic legal examples.
