    Using this model, it is shown how presumptions work as devices used in evidentiary reasoning in law in the event of a lack of evidence to assist a chain of reasoning . The probability of a disjunction of contrary propositions is equal to the sum of the probabilities of its disjuncts, where a "disjunction" is a proposition of the "s or t" form and s and t are its "disjuncts". 3. A conditional probability is the probability of a proposition on the condition that some proposition is true.

      The legal concept of evidence is neither static nor universal. Medieval understandings of evidence in the age of trial by ordeal would be quite alien to modern sensibilities (Ho –) and there is no approach to evidence and proof that is shared by all legal systems of the world today. Logical reasoning (or just “logic” for short) is one of the fundamental skills of effective thinking. It works by raising questions like: If this is true, what else must be true?; If this is true, what else is probably true?; If this isn’t true, what else can’t be true?; These are all inferences: they’re connections between a given sentence (the “premise”) and some other sentence.

    Logic is the formal science of using reason and is considered a branch of both philosophy and mathematics and to a lesser extent computer investigates and classifies the structure of statements and arguments, both through the study of formal systems of inference and the study of arguments in natural scope of logic can therefore be very large, . Legal presumptions are of two kinds: first, such as are made by the law itself, or presumptions of mere law; secondly, such as are to be made by a jury, or presumptions of law and fact. st. Presumptions of mere law, are either absolute and conclusive; as, for instance, the presumption of law that a bond or other specialty was executed upon.

Fact finding in judicial proceedings is a dynamic process. This collection of papers considers whether computational methods or other formal logical methods developed in disciplines such as artificial intelligence, decision theory, and probability theory can facilitate the study and management of dynamic evidentiary and inferential processes in litigation.

In the law of evidence, a presumption of a particular fact can be made without the aid of proof in some situations. The invocation of a presumption shifts the burden of proof from one party to the opposing party in a court trial.

There are two types of presumption: rebuttable presumption and conclusive presumption.A rebuttable presumption is assumed true until a person proves. Probability formulations of criminal and civil common law verdicts could help to clarify complex legal reasoning.

The logical disjunctions with the universal set, U, for the U4 logic system. Law, Probability and Risk, can encompass together in a uniform way both formal and informal logical reasoning, capturing well the empirical data of human syllogistic reasoning .inductive logic, it is probably best to take a course on probability and statistics.

Inductive reasoning is often called statistical (or probabilistic) reasoning, and forms the basis of experimental science. Inductive reasoning is important to science, but so is deductive reasoning, which is the subject of this book.

Consider argument (a2) above.The book provides a model of reasoning with burden of proof and presumption, based on analyses of many clearly explained legal and non-legal examples.

The model is shown to fit cases of everyday conversational argumentation as well as argumentation in legal cases.
