Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


Present areas of application of computers to the law fall into three broad categories: (1) those involving applications of business accounting techniques such as in tax preparation and client billing, (2) those involving data management techniques such as law enforcement, criminal justice, and keyword legal source material information systems, and (3) those involving on-line file manipulation in such areas as text-editing and drafting. These systems demonstrate that computers can work very well with problems that can be expressed in terms of numbers or information that can be handled on the basis of its external form.
