Abstract

The OPJK (Ontology of Professional Judicial Knowledge) is a legal ontology developed to map questions of junior judges to a set of stored frequently asked questions. In this paper, we investigate dynamic and temporal aspects of one of the SEKT legal ontologies, by subjecting the ontology OPJK to MORE, a multi-version ontologies reasoning System. MORE is based on a temporal logic approach. We show how the temporal logic approach can be used to obtain a better understanding of dynamic and temporal evolution of legal ontologies.
