The Atticus Project

Open-Source Dataset of Legal Contracts for AI

About Us

The Atticus Project is a non-profit organization whose mission is to harness the power of AI to accelerate accurate and efficient contract review.

Atticus Open Contract Dataset 

(AOK) (beta) is available for download.

A corpus of 5,000+ labels in 200 commercial legal contracts with rich expert annotations. The dataset has been manually labeled to identify 40 types of legal clauses in commercial contracts that are considered important by experienced lawyers in contract review in connection with a corporate transaction, including mergers & acquisitions, investments, initial public offering, etc.

Our beta dataset has been published! Thanks to all the fabulous volunteers who made this happen. Follow the instructions here to download it.
