A Logical Understanding of Legal Interpretation (bibtex)
by Guido Boella, Guido Governatori, Antonino Rotolo, Leendert van der Torre
Abstract:
If compliance with a norm does not achieve its purpose, then its applicability must dynamically be restricted or expanded. Legal interpretation is a mechanism from law allowing norms to be adapted to unforeseen situations. We model this mechanism for norms regulating computer systems by representing the purpose of norms by social goals and by revising the constitutive rules defining the applicability of norms. We illustrate the interpretation mechanism by examples.
