Open-Source Dataset of Legal Contracts for AI
CUAD Labeling Handbook
The Labeling Handbook for Contract Understanding Atticus Dataset (Commercial Contracts)(CUAD) contains selected guidelines developed by The Atticus Project to guide our volunteer annotators in curating (CUAD)(Commercial Contract) v1 that was released on March 1, 2021. The Handbook can be accessed free of charge here under a CC BY-NC-SA 4.0 license, subject to the additional terms included in the Handbook.
CUAD (Commercial Contracts)
A corpus of 13,000+ labels in 510 commercial legal contracts with rich expert annotations. The dataset has been manually labeled under the supervision of experienced lawyers to identify 41 types of legal clauses in commercial contracts that are considered important in contract review in connection with a corporate transaction, including mergers & acquisitions, corporate finance, investments, initial public offering, etc.
The Atticus Project is a non-profit organization whose mission is to harness the power of AI to accelerate accurate and efficient contract review.
The CUAD Labeling Handbook is now available. Check it out free of charge here.
Our paper on CUAD is accepted by NeurIPS 2021, the 35th Conference on Neural Information Processing Systems (Datasets and Benchmarks Track)!
We are working on a new dataset of M&A agreements, which is scheduled for public release in January 2022.
