In the context of processing information the transition from syntax to semantics and vice versa has been studied in several fields and for a variety of purposes. One area where it is of particular interest is the domain of law and legal informatics where these transitions play an important role for supporting human communication and understanding as well as for enabling machine processing. In this paper we discuss how the techniques of visualization can be used for supporting such transitions by abstracting information to a meta level. We illustrate this by using selected examples and derive directions for further research.
