Classifying Litigation Documents by Type

Osgood, Gene, Classifying Litigation Documents by Type (November 6, 2020). Proceedings of the 4th Annual RELX Search Summit, Available at SSRN:

“Law firms typically have large document repositories of litigation documents. Attorneys often want to locate litigation documents of a particular type, such as a motion to dismiss. Tagging each document with its type makes it much easier to locate a particular document, usually through filtering. Many law firms require their document authors to manually tag documents by type when storing them in a document repository. However, this process is expensive and unreliable. We present a system for automatically classifying litigation documents that can be done behind the customer firewall, in a way that doesn’t require cloud infrastructure or external dependencies.”
