Abstract In this paper we illustrate an approach to information extraction from legal texts using SALEM. SALEM is an NLP architecture for semantic annotation and indexing of Italian legislative texts, developed by ILC in close collaboration with ITTIG-CNR, Florence. Results of SALEM performance on a test sample of about 500 Italian law paragraphs are provided.
