Designing a controlled natural language for the representation of legal norms


Höfler, Stefan; Bünzli, Alexandra (2010). Designing a controlled natural language for the representation of legal norms. In: Second Workshop on Controlled Natural Languages, Marettimo Island, Italy, 13 September 2010 - 15 September 2010, online.

Abstract

Controlled Legal German (CLG) is a controlled natural language being developed for the representation of legal norms contained in Swiss statutes and regulations. This paper discusses the main design requirements CLG faces and the strategies it applies to meet them. CLG aims at providing representations for legal norms that are both formal and can be easily understood and veried by legal experts. It must combine an unambiguous semantics based on FOL and deontic concepts with close syntactic proximity to conventional legal language.
