Abstract

The complexity of recommending court orders for each juvenile delinquencies case is due to the need to make decision based on past experiences, precedence cases and legal statutes. Current practice demand probation officers to look into their past experiences before they are able to search manually for similar precedence court cases. The quest for fairness in the recommendation process often leads to backlog in juvenile delinquency trials. However, this problem can be overcome through the introduction of RBR and CBR techniques. This paper aims to discuss the application of both techniques which are embedded in the Juvenile Delinquency Recommendation (JDRES) model. The similarities between the results from the model and the expert’s selection indicate that JDRES model can be applied in the automation of the legal reasoning procedure.
