Use of Bayesian Belief Networks in legal reasoning [pdf]Paper  abstract   bibtex   
The principles of Bayesian probability and Bayesian belief networks, and their applicability for judicial reasoning are briefly explained. As an example, a Bayesian belief network model has been constructed that compares the probabilities of two hypothesised causes of a single-car accident. It is concluded that Bayesian belief networks can be a suitable tool for lawyers to analyse the evidence in judicial cases, as well as a suitable tool to train students to perform those analyses and to avoid statistical pitfalls.
