The Rule Systems Panel

Computational Law is the branch of Legal Informatics concerned with the mechanization of legal analysis (whether done by humans or by computers).  Predictive Analytics has brought the power of big data and computer processing to predicting the odds of certain legal outcomes.  Traditional “rule-based” approaches, on the other hand, can offer advantages in building systems capable of effective legal analysis.  This panel brings together experts to help us understand the prospects and problems associated with this classic approach to Computational Law.
