  • API version: v1
    • Build date: 2019-02-18T15:11:46.584Z

With the Open Legal Data API you can access various data from the legal domain, e.g. law text or case files. The data may be used for semantic analysis or to create statistics. For more information visit our website.

Automatically generated by the Swagger Codegen


Building the API client library requires:

  1. Java 1.7+
  2. Maven/Gradle


To install the API client library to your local Maven repository, simply execute:

mvn clean install

To deploy it to a remote Maven repository instead, configure the settings of the repository and execute:

mvn clean deploy

Refer to the OSSRH Guide for more information.

Getting Started

Please follow the installation instruction and execute the following Java code:

import io.swagger.client.*;
import io.swagger.client.auth.*;
import io.swagger.client.model.*;
import io.swagger.client.api.AnnotationLabelsApi;

import java.util.*;

public class AnnotationLabelsApiExample {

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        ApiClient defaultClient = Configuration.getDefaultApiClient();
        // Configure API key authorization: api_key
        ApiKeyAuth api_key = (ApiKeyAuth) defaultClient.getAuthentication("api_key");
        api_key.setApiKey("YOUR API KEY");
        // Uncomment the following line to set a prefix for the API key, e.g. "Token" (defaults to null)

        AnnotationLabelsApi apiInstance = new AnnotationLabelsApi();
        AnnotationLabel data = new AnnotationLabel(); // AnnotationLabel | 
        try {
            AnnotationLabel result = apiInstance.annotationLabelsCreate(data);
        } catch (ApiException e) {
            System.err.println("Exception when calling AnnotationLabelsApi#annotationLabelsCreate");
