The project aims to contribute to the foundations of computational argumentation in legal proceedings by focusing on three main research questions. First, how can we use computational methods to annotate, model, and mine legal arguments and argumentation in legal proceedings? Second,  how can we model and recognize similar argumentation patterns in legal proceedings? And third, how can computational models of legal argumentation support empirical research on the role of oral and written arguments at human rights courts?
