Acting under several jurisdictions at the same time is becoming the norm rather than the exception, certainly for companies but also (sometimes without knowing) for individuals. In these circumstances disparities among the different laws are inevitable. Here, we present a mathematical and a computational model of interacting legal specifications, along with a mechanism to find conflicts between them. We illustrate the approach by a case study using European Privacy law.
