Workshop: Artificial Intelligence Technologies for Legal Documents

Submit By: 10 August 2022 

About the Workshop: 

The legal domain applies to every aspect of people’s lives and evolves continuously, building a huge network of interlinked legal documents. Therefore, it is important for a government to offer services that make legal information easily accessible to the citizens, enabling them to defend their rights, audit public procurement, or use legislation as part of their job. It is equally important to have professionals (lawyers, judges, administrations, etc.) access legislation in ways that allow them to do their job easily (e.g., they might need to be able to see the evolution of law over time). Despite recent efforts to make all this accessible and transparent to both citizens and the companies involved, the level of implementation in different countries and layers of public administration still makes access difficult. For this reason, in the age of the Web it is important to develop applications for citizens and professionals easily, by connecting the available legal information with other kinds of government or private sector information.

The vision of the AI4LEGAL workshop is to bring together Artificial Intelligence and practitioners to discuss the digitization of legal documents, such as legislation and public procurement data, in today’s interconnected world.


The topics of interest to be covered by the workshop are the following:

  • Natural language processing techniques for legal documents
  • Legal knowledge graphs
  • Knowledge representation and reasoning techniques for legal documents
  • Explainable AI for legal documents
  • Linked data for legal documents
