One open problem in the AI & Law community is how to provide computers with a basic understanding of legal concepts, and their relationship with legal texts and with the legal lexicon. We propose to add a layer to connect the linguistic description of the provisions to syntactic patterns using FramNet that can be exploited thought NLP tools. A deep-parsing and shallowsemantics approach has been devised to interpret and retrieve the characterizing components of legal modificatory provisions. In this paper we single out the case of efficacy suspension and show how FrameNet approach can provide profit especially to isolate temporal parameters and their interpretation
