Professor of Computer Science and Law
Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey
My research is in Artificial Intelligence, with a specialization in the applications of artificial intelligence techniques to law and legal reasoning.  My main technical publications have been in the area of Knowledge Representation, with a lengthy excursion into Intuitionistic Logic Programming.  More recently, I have been applying Natural Language Processing (NLP) techniques to the problem of extracting information from legal texts.  I am also (currently) writing a book on my work in AI & Law, with the provisional title: A Computational Theory of Legal Argument.  I teach courses in Computer Science at Rutgers, and for many years I taught courses in Law, with an emphasis on Copyrights, Patents and Trademarks.
