Since most legal documents are released in digital form nowadays it has become more and more important to be able to search these documents adequately. Metadata, such as the area of law a certain document is about, included with digital publications can help to find similar publications faster, however the included metadata are very often incomplete. Automatic document classification can supplement essential metadata in legal documents released from different sources, such that integrated legal content systems can offer uniform options for the selection of relevant documents.
