Maarek on the Extraction of Decisions and Contributions from Summaries of French Legal IT Contract Cases

Dr. Manuel Maarek of INRIA Grenoble Rhône-Alpes, LICIT, will present a paper entitled On the Extraction of Decisions and Contributions from Summaries of French Legal IT Contract Cases (for the full text of the paper, click here for the conference proceedings in PDF and scroll down to the page numbered 30) at SPLeT 2010: The 3rd Workshop on Semantic Processing of Legal Texts, to be held 23 May 2010 in Malta.

The workshop is part of LREC 2010: The 7th International Conference on Language Resources and Evaluation.

Here is the abstract of the paper:

French court decisions play an ambivalent role of being the main source for software contract drafters and in the meantime an unreliable legal authority as precedents are not creating laws in the French legal system. Nevertheless, in the legally yet unsettled domain of IT contracts, case decisions are the main source of legal information for contractors. Thus, semantic extraction from French legal IT contract cases could highlight valuable information. We have experimented the extraction of decisions and contributions from a set of summaries of French legal IT contract cases. We are reporting on the ongoing development of our method to represent and infer such semantic knowledge from legal summaries.
