A Model of Complexity for the Legal Domain†
AbstractThe concept of complexity has been neglected in the legal domain. Both as a qualitative concept that could be used to legally and politically analyze and criticize legal proceedings and as a quantitative concept that could be used to compare, rank, plan and optimize these proceedings. In science the opposite is true. Especially in the field of Algorithmic Information Theory (AIT) the concept of complexity has been scrutinized. In this paper we introduce a model of problem complexity in the legal domain. We use a formal model of legal knowledge to describe the parameters of the problem complexity of legal cases represented in this model.
