In this paper we present an overview of the process of argumentation with legal cases, from evidence to verdict. We identify the various different types of statement involved in the various stages, and describe how the various types relate to one another. In particular we show how we can obtain the legally accepted facts which form the basis for consideration of the law governing the cases from facts about the world. We also explain how we can determine which particular facts are relevant. In so doing we bring together several important pieces of AI and Law research and clarify their relationships.
