This paper illustrates a system designed to automatically extract semantic annotations of the normative modifications present in legal texts. The work relies on a deep parsing approach. The problem of semantically annotating legal texts is cast to the problem of mapping parse trees to semantic frames representing such modifications. We report a preliminary experimentation along with the dataset employed, and discuss the results to point out future improvements.
