Automated Semantic Analysis of Information in Legal Text

The ASAIL Interest Group & Workshop Series

Building the Legal NLP Community

The ASAIL workshop series and interest group serves as a platform for researchers and practitioners working on natural language processing of legal text. Its goals include:

  • Organizing regular peer-reviewed workshop events for presentation and discussion of research and practical implementations around legal NLP
  • Facilitating communication and collaboration among academic researchers as well as practitioners from industry, government, and the public sector, and other interested individuals and organizations
  • Providing an entry point into the research field and community

ASAIL is affiliated with the International Association of Artificial Intelligence and Law (IAAIL). The first workshop was held at the 2015 ICAIL conference followed by successors at later ICAILs.

The ASAIL interest group maintains a Slack channel. Those who are interested are welcome to participate and should contact the organizing committee chair by email to gain access.
