In the previous article, “Argumentation and Computing,” we provided an overview as well as some operational knowledge of this important, emerging intersection of argumentation (paramount as it is in philosophy, ethics, and law) and computational models or computer tools. In the present short entry, instead, we focus on providing operational knowledge about a particular graphical notation for argumentation, Wigmore Charts, quite valuable for legal scholars, yet which have deservedly come within the notice of computer scientists. Once you learn how to use Wigmore Charts, they may well be the handiest notation around. This is why we find it important to teach how to use them.
