Research Interests

My research interests in Learning, Law and Computer Science are to:

1. Develop computational models of case-based reasoning (CBR) in domains like law and practical ethics as an intellectual methodology for better understanding comparative evaluation with cases and principles and as a basis for intelligent computer systems to educate students and assist practitioners.
2. Develop case-based and analogical reasoning as alternative techniques for representing and acquiring knowledge in Artificial Intelligence (AI) programs.
3. Identify and analyze special legal problems posed by computer technology in such areas as intellectual property, commercia
