This paper describes a project to develop a prototype of an intelligent computer system that contains legal domain knowledge which is capable of being accessed via the World Wide Web, and which can support legal decision making and advice in the area of Scottish divorce law. The results of both the initial feasibility analysis and the issues encountered in the course of the project are used to advise future researchers on how to carry out a prototyping project in a legal domain.
