Legal NLP releases Text Generation, 10+ new NER and Classifiers on NDA documents, 15 multilanguage NER and 2 new notebooks!

Legal NLP 1.12 comes with a lot of new capabilities added to the 926+ models and 125+ Language Models already available in previous versions of the library. Let’s take a look at each of them!

Native Legal Text Generation

With our new Text Generation annotator, you can give the start of a sentence from a legal document and get the model generate the rest.

We have trained 2 models:

1️⃣A generic one, with different legal documents;

2️⃣A specific one, trained specifically on commercial agreements;

Example of the commercial agreements-based model:

Input: This BETA TEST Agreement (“Agreement”) is entered into between …


… [Company Name] (“Company”), and the individual or entity agreeing to these terms (“Beta Tester”). This Agreement governs Beta Tester’s participation in the beta test of Company’s software product (“Beta Product”) and any related materials or services provided by Company in connection with the beta test (collectively, the “Beta Program”). Beta Tester Obligations. Beta Tester agrees to: a. Participate in the Beta Program, including by testing the Beta Product and providing feedback to Company in a timely and constructive manner. b. Keep all aspects of the Beta Program confidential, including but not limited to the Beta Product and any related materials or services provided by Company in connection with the beta test.

In Legal NLP we have trained 10 new NER and CLF models for NDA agreements (NLP for contracts), which now sum up to 45 models. Here is a list of the entities detecter, with the sections where they should be run in and the F1-scores.
