Legal NLP releases new Contract NLI demo and more

The newest version of the library comes with an extended visualization of the contract NLI pretrained model.

Contract NLI demo app

The new demo app shows the capabilities of the pretrained model to perform NLI on legal contracts. This model was previously released and can classify statements based on context as one of the following categories:

  • Entailment: the statement agrees with the context
  • Contradiction: the statement is contradictory to the context
  • Neutral: There is no clear relation between the context and the statement

For example, the hypothesis “Receiving Party shall not use any Confidential Information for any purpose other than the purposes stated in Agreement.” given the context below, is classified as Entailment.

Each Recipient shall use the Evaluation Material solely for the purpose of evaluating a Possible Transaction and, subject to Section 5, will not disclose any of the Evaluation Material in any manner whatsoever; provided, however, that any of such information may be disclosed to the Recipient’s Representatives for the purpose of helping the Recipient evaluate a Possible Transaction.

To check how to use the model on custom data, please follow the instructions on the model card and previous release notes. You can find the demo in this link.

Fancy trying?

We’ve got 30-day free licenses for you with technical support from our legal team of technical and SMEs. This trial includes complete access to more than 926 models, including Classification, NER, Relation Extraction, Similarity Search, Summarization, Sentiment Analysis, Question Answering, etc., and 120+ legal language models.

Just go to and follow the instructions!

Don’t forget to check our notebooks and demos.
