Title: Fine-grained legal entity annotation: A case study on the Brazilian Supreme Court
Author: Hartmann, Ivar Alberto Glasherster Martins Lange
Publication Date: 2022
Abstract: The exploration of legal documents in the Brazilian Judiciary context lacks reliable annotated corpus to support the development of new Natural Language Process (NLP) applications. Therefore, this paper presents a step toward exploring legal decisions with Named Entity Recognition (NER) in the Brazilian Supreme Court (STF) context. We aim to present a case study on the fine-grained annotation task of legal decisions, performed by law students as annotators where two levels of nested legal entities were annotated. Nested entities mapped in a preliminary study composed of four coarser legal named entities and twenty-four nested ones (fine-grained). The final result is a corpus of 594 decisions published by the STF annotated by the 76 law students, those with the highest average inter-annotator agreement score. We also present two baselines for NER based on Conditional Random Fields (CRFs) and Bidirectional Long-Short Term Memory Networks (BiLSTMs). This corpus is the first of its kind, the most extensive corpus known in Portuguese dedicated for legal named entity recognition, open and available to better support further research studies in a similar context.
