Abstract
Reports on a comparison of 2 natural language interfaces to full text legal databases: WIN for access to WESTLAW databases and FREESTYLE for access to the LEXIS database. 30 legal issues in natural langugae queries were presented to identical libraries in both systems. The top 20 ranked documents from each search were analyzed and reviewed for relevance to the legal issue
