|Abstract: ||Web legal information retrieval systems need the capability to reason
with the knowledge modeled by legal ontologies. Using this knowledge it is possible
to represent and to make inferences about the semantic content of legal documents.
In this paper a methodology for applying NLP techniques to automatically create
a legal ontology is proposed. The ontology is defined in the OWL semantic web
language and it is used in a logic programming framework, EVOLP+ISCO, to allow
users to query the semantic content of the documents. ISCO allows an easy and
efficient integration of declarative, object-oriented and constraint-based program-
ming techniques with the capability to create connections with external databases.
EVOLP is a dynamic logic programming framework allowing the definition of rules
for actions and events.
An application of the proposed methodology to the legal web information re-
trieval system of the Portuguese Attorney General’s Office is described.|
