This paper gives a formal elaboration of the theory of legal reasoning and argumentation that was described in Hage et al. 1994. Legal reasoning is considered to be procedural, and the way this procedure is modeled is a two person dialogue. Basic elements of this two person dialogue are defined, such as moves, and rules are formulated that describe how dialogues run.
