The Leibniz Center for Law develops computer models of statutes as well as methods in order to make the 'translation' from legal language to computer language increasingly automated. A trustworthy, neutral interpretation of the legal text, without added details, is here of great importance. In the presentation the speakers will explain these 'translation'-methods and their 'technical' approach to legal interpretation with examples from various areas of law.
The lecture will be given in Dutch.
