Welcome to Legal AI!

    In the digital era, information retrieval, text/knowledge mining, and NLP techniques are playing increasingly vital roles in legal do- main. While the open datasets and innovative deep learning methodologies provide critical potentials, in the legal-domain, efforts need to be made to transfer the theoretical/algorithmic models into the real applications to assist users, lawyers, judges and the legal professions to solve the real problems. The objective of this work- shop is to aggregate studies/applications of text mining/retrieval and NLP automation in the context of classical/novel legal tasks, which address algorithmic, data and social challenges of legal intelligence. Keynote and invited presentations from industry and academic will be able to fill the gap between ambition and execution in the legal domain.



    The workshop will include original contributions on theories, methodologies, and applications of legal text/data mining, legal document retrieval, machine learning, legal knowledge graph generation/mining, natural language processing, and legal knowledge representation in the legal ecosystem. The scope of the workshop includes, but is not limited to, the following areas:

    We especially encourage workshop participates use the open le- gal datasets, e.g., Artificial Intelligence for Legal Assistance (AILA 2019) and CAIL 2019, and they can also create and share the publicly available dataset to motivate other scholars to further investigate this important domain.



    We welcome original research papers that present novel research ideas and we encourage submissions of greenhouse work, which present early stages of cutting-edge research and development. Position papers regarding work on the beginning, demo, and industry papers are also welcome.

    All papers must be original and not simultaneously submitted to another journal or conference. The following paper categories are welcome:

  • Novel research papers in full (up to 8 pages) or short length (up to 4 pages)
  • Work-in-progress papers (up to 4 pages)
  • Demo papers (up to 2 pages)
  •     All submissions should be formatted according to the official ACM "sigconf" template format.

        Papers must be submitted before deadline via EasyChair at this Link
