Rechtspraak.nl yearly publishes a small percentage of all court decisions of that year. In 2020, out of 1,37 million court decisions 46,564 judicial texts were published online. They contain a lot of information, but this information is hard to reach by computer algorithms because of the typical properties of the data (e.g., domain-specific jargon, spelling and typing errors, etc.). We envision that one day we will be able to automatically extract all available information from all kinds of textual data sources, and the relations between them to create a so-called ‘knowledge graph’. The availability of such tooling will make the extraction of information from a multitude of sources much less time intensive, and the extracted graphs available for further information processing or integration in other models (and simulations).
