Why We Do It

The field of Natural Language Processing (NLP) and Text Mining for legal documents holds immense potential for transforming how legal professionals interact with and extract insights from vast amounts of text. Recognizing the need for a centralized hub of resources, the Liquid Legal Institute brings together leading experts in this domain. Our mission is to foster collaboration, pool existing legal text analytics resources, and provide an open-source platform that empowers individuals and organizations to enhance their tools and collectively tackle more intricate challenges in the legal text analytics landscape.

How We Do It

In an effort to streamline and elevate the starting point for NLP and text mining projects, we’re creating a comprehensive, state-of-the-art overview of existing resources, use cases, tools, methods, datasets, and more. By openly publishing this repository, we invite professionals and enthusiasts alike to access and contribute.

This collaborative approach not only accelerates the advancement of individual projects but also establishes a shared knowledge base that benefits the entire legal tech community. We extend our gratitude to all contributors and encourage continued engagement in building a robust foundation for legal text analytics innovation.
