In this paper, we explain how highly unstructured domain knowledge can be acquired and integrated in a case-based reasoning system. We apply our approach to the life counseling domain. We introduce the two steps of our knowledge acquisition approach in such unstructured domains. The first step is manual and relies on domain experts. The second step is automatic and uses information extraction techniques. Our approach has the potential to contribute to the formalizing and establishing of an important subset of life counseling terminology. In addition, our approach could serve as an example for comparable weak theory domains.
