Towards A Kos To Manage and Retrieve Legal Data
Legislation is a technical domain characterized by highly specialized knowledge forming a large corpus where content is interdependent in nature, but the context is poorly formalized. Typically, the legal domain involves several document types that can be related. Amendments, past judicial interpretations, or new laws can refer to other legal documents to contextualize or support legal formulation. Lengthy and complex texts are frequently unstructured or in some cases semi-structured. Therefore, several problems arise since legal documents, articles, or specific constraints can be cited and referenced differently. Based on legal annotations from a real-world scenario, an architectural approach for modeling a Knowledge Organization System for classifying legal documents and the related legal objects is presented. Data is summarized and classified using a topic modeling approach, with a view toward the improvement of browsing and retrieval of main legal topics and associated terms.
