We continue to rock Computational Law in Minsk. Minsk Computational Law Lab and BSU’ Juriclinic has spawned an university project: “Digital legal consultant”. Kudos to Katerina Ulianova, Kirill Zahilko, Daria Markevich, Alex Varabei, the management of the BSU law school and the Startup Center of BSU.
“Model-based Law. Ontological modeling as a critical part of the digital transformation of law and action-centric legal ontologies”.
Model-based approach is de-fact and de-jure standard in engineering. Why and how certain principles of MBA can be used to accelerate progress in legal transformation? Why current object-centric approach in legal ontologies don’t seem to be sufficiently scalable to cover diverse and complex knowledge of legal matters.

Continuing to propagate Computational Law across students of Belorussian universities. The ‘2020 version of the lecture.
Between the mid-1990s and the early 2010s, European Union institutions funded several attempts to formalize lawmaking and legal information exchange, including projects to create a reference ontology of law as a basis for the exchange of legal information at the semantic level. This article covers this attempt, comments on the attained results attainted and why the research in the legal ontology field eventually entered the “winter”.
Zoomed in on the OpenLaw project. It’s not really open though.

We are Belorussian researchers, lawyers, software engineers, university teachers, professors and scientific workers those interested in the field of technological transformations in legal domain. The field of research within Computational Law is primarily the search for formal, computable representations of legal knowledge that allow networks of natural and artificial intelligent agents to effectively exploit such representations in general activities. The long-term goal of the research is to ensure that legal regulation in the digital age has acquired the technological support and form that would meet the requirements of the present and the future.
