Law and word order: NLP in legal tech

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

The law has language at its heart, so it's not surprising that software that operates on natural language has played a role in some areas of the legal profession for a long time. But the last few years have seen an increased interest in applying modern techniques to a wider range of problems, so I look here at how natural language processing is being used in the legal sector today.
