Abstract

Various logical representations and frameworks have been proposed for reasoning with legal information. These approaches assume that the legal text has already been translated to the desired formal representation. However, the approaches for translating legal text into formal representations have mostly focused on inferring facts from text or translating it to a single representation. In this work, we use the NL2KR system to translate legal text into a wide variety of formal representations. This will enable the use of existing logical reasoning approaches on legal text (English), thus allowing reasoning with text.
