Abstract

It is well recognised that it is difficult to make the semantic content of legal texts machine readable. We propose a systematic methodology to begin to render a sample legal text into LegalRuleML, which is a proposed markup for legal rules. We propose three levels - coarse, medium, and fine-grained analyses - each of which is compatible with LegalRuleML and which facilitate development from text to formal LegalRuleML. This paper provides guidelines for a coarse-grained analysis, highlighting some of the challenges to address even at this level.
