The Hammurabi Project is an experiment in codifying U.S. law - such as the U.S. Code, the Code of Federal Regulations, state laws, etc. - into executable computer code. The project's basic components are: (1) A core library of classes and functions that facilitate the representation of legal knowledge. (2) Files written in a domain specific language called Akkadian (.akk), which is used to represent the legislation, regulations, and case law. (3) A primitive compiler that converts the Akkadian files into C#. (4) Unit tests for the core library and the legal rules. More information can be found on the project wiki (at Github).
