Paper titled Consumer Protection in the Digital Era - The Potential of Customer-Centered LegalTech published at INFORMATIK 2019

The paper titled "Consumer Protection in the Digital Era: The Potential of Customer-Centered LegalTech" was pusblished at INFORMATIK 2019.


New technologies and tools, often summarised under the term “LegalTech”, are changing the way in which legal professionals work. The digital transformation has changed many aspects of our daily life and democratised access to knowledge and services. In the legal domain, however, consumers rarely benefit from digitisation. On the contrary, they are often overpowered by big corporations and their well equipped legal departments. In this paper, we outline how LegalTech can be used to empower consumers in the digital era, by building tools to support consumers and those who protect them. In order to show the potential of customer-centered LegalTech, we present two prototypes which semantically analyse, assess, and summarise Terms of Services from German web shops.

Article about joint research published by our industry partner Haufe Group

The sebis chair has been researching the utilization of artificial intelligence in order to improve legal research for several years. As a part of this effort, a joint research project with the Haufe Group has been established. In particular the semantic text matching problem as well as semantic search technologies were explored. More information about this research is also available here. Most recently, our industry partner was able to successfully transfer the gained knowledge and technologies into its own business. 

As a reuslt, Haufe Group published an interesting article about our project and findings. The article is available at
