Abstract

This paper proposes to integrate an argumentation framework with techniques from Temporal Constraint Satisfaction. Temporal constraints are thus embedded into legal argumentation to account for temporal aspects of legal reasoning. Through the accommodation of temporal constraints, the validity of arguments and of their conclusions is made relative to the time-points when the applied norms are alive, according to the adopted temporal perspective. A fixed-point semantics and an associated dialogue game are given.
