Abstract

             technologies can be used to produce conceptual representations of legal documents and to perform reasoning on the information that they contain. At the same time, Business Process Re-engineering is being applied more frequently to optimize the procedures of Public Administrations. While the existing literature on tools and methodologies to analyze, model and manipulate legal documents is extensive, there is a lack of a comprehensive tool that allows for a complete analysis of laws in all their aspect. In this paper we propose the design of a modeling framework to support the law-making process, facilitating the participation of people without a jurisprudence background to the editing of regulations.
