A proposal for legal information extraction is described, aiming to automatically populate an ontology. The experiments were performed over a set of legal documents from the European lex site. The proposed approach combines two different processes, namely statistical based and rule-based methodologies, and can be considered an hybrid approach. This methodology showed good results, namely in the precision, recall and f-measure values.
