“Methodologies for Research on Legal Argumentation”

Special Issue of the journal, Informal Logic (ISSN: 0824-2577)
www.argdiap.pl/InformalLogic

“Methodologies for Research on Legal Argumentation” will explore the current state of the art in the study legal argumentation which is characterized by the applicability of a great variety of concepts, distinctions, frameworks and methods. Our aim is to provide a venue for the exchange of ideas from different research perspectives, including AI and Law, argumentation theory, and legal theory.

This volume is the 2nd special issue published under auspices of the ArgDiaP organisation (www.argdiap.pl). The first one, published as an issue of the Argumentation journal (www.argdiap.pl/argumentation), was dedicated to the research of the Polish School of Argumentation. That special issue also included the School’s Manifesto (www.argdiap.pl/manifesto) co-authored by 55 researchers from 20 institutions all across Poland.

The special issue will continue exciting discussions which took place at the 1st MET-ARG workshop (Methodologies for Research on Legal Argumentation www.argdiap.pl/metarg2014) organised in Kraków in 2014 in conjunction with JURIX 2014 (27th International Conference on Legal Knowledge and Information Systems www.conference.jurix.nl/2014/) and CMNA 2014 (14th Workshop on Computational Models of Natural Argument www.cmna.info/CMNA14/).

The topics include, but are not limited to: (more…)

PRESUMPTIONS, PRESUMPTIVE INFERENCES AND BURDEN OF PROOF

26-28 April 2016
University of Granada, Spain
 

FIRST CALL FOR PAPERS


The nature of presumptions is a topic of special interest within the field of law, not only because legal systems abound with so called presumptions of law, but also because some of these presumptions, such as the presumption of innocence and the different presumptions of validity are supposed to determine the very legitimacy of judicial procedures. Philosophers and argumentation theorists have also paid attention to presumptions and presumptive inferences as devices for reaching conclusions under uncertainty playing a widespread cognitive role in both everyday and scientific reasoning. Authors like Nicholas Rescher (2006), Douglas Walton (2008) and James Freeman (2005) even contend that presumptions are unavoidable points of departure for any inquiry, and consequently, conditions of possibility for achieving justification for our claims and beliefs. For, on the one hand, presumptions would articulate the exemption of providing further reasons for our reasons, which is something necessary if chains of reasoning are to stop at some point. And regarding argumentative exchanges, presumptions would serve to allocate the burden of proof among discussants, determining the path for a correct argumentative discussion to take place. This conference aims at bringing together argumentation theorists, philosophers, logicians and philosophers of law working on the role of presumptions, presumptive inferences in the field of law, in science and in everyday reasoning.

The 1st International Workshop for Methodologies for Research on Legal Argumentation (MET-ARG)

——–
December 10, 2014, Kraków, Poland at JURIX 2014 (The 27th International Conference on Legal Knowledge and Information Systems, http://conference.jurix.nl/2014/)

MET-ARG is held in conjunction with the CMNA 14 workshop (http://www.cmna.info/CMNA14) and is organized under auspices of the ArgDiaP organisation (http://argdiap.pl/)

The aim of the workshop is to provide a space for exchange of methodological ideas concerning the research on legal argumentation from three perspectives: AI and Law, argumentation theory and legal theory. Since a thorough discussion of scientific aims and adopted methodologies is needed in this field, our main motivation is to discuss some perspectives of cooperation and mutual inspiration among these three research areas in order to develop more effective, accurate and scientifically adequate theories and models of legal argumentation. This may lead to establishing of interdisciplinary research projects related to legal argumentation.

Since we intend to facilitate a vivid and fruitful discussion of these issues, we would like to call for participation in the workshop on behalf of the organizing committee.

First Call for Papers

The 15th International Conference on Artificial Intelligence and Law (ICAIL 2015) will be held at the University of San Diego School of Law from Monday, June 8 to Friday, June 12, 2015.

Artificial Intelligence and Law is a vibrant research field that focuses on:

  • Legal reasoning and development of computational methods of such reasoning
  • Applications of AI and other advanced information technologies that are intended to support the legal domain
  • Discovery of electronically stored information for legal applications (eDiscovery)
  • Machine learning and data mining for legal applications
  • Formal models of norms, normative systems, and norm-governed societies

Since it began in 1987, the ICAIL conference has been established as the primary international conference addressing research in Artificial Intelligence and Law. It is organized biennially under the auspices of the International Association for Artificial Intelligence and Law (IAAIL). The conference proceedings are published by ACM. The journal Artificial Intelligence and Law regularly publishes expanded versions of selected ICAIL papers.
