Zeleznikow, John and Bellucci, Emilia and Schild, Uri J. and Mackenzie, Geraldine (2007) Bargaining in the shadow of the law - using utility functions to support legal negotiation. In: 11th International Conference on Artificial Intelligence and Law, 4-8 Jun 2007, Stanford, CA. United States.
Most dispute resolution is settled by negotiation rather than litigation. However, such bargaining often occurs in the shadow of the law. To help support interest-based negotiation, we explore the use of utility functions to support negotiation analysis. We discuss in detail a utility function we have developed in the area of family-law mediation. This function is currently being used as the basis of an online dispute resolution system.
