We are exploring ontology evolution in the legal domain, by modeling the interpretation of open-textured statutory concepts in a legal case. This requires representing, and reasoning about, the mappings between a statutory context, a real-world context, and the various legal, social, and ethical contexts involved in a legal case. We are using contextual logics to formalise the process of legal theory construction.
