3. CONTENTS AND FUNCTIONS
‘Constructions’ applies a unique technology in generalization of the legal matter.
The basic scheme of information organization in the product is called construction.
The constructions have been extracted from jurisprudence and their integral provisions constitute their denominations. For example – Art.45 OCA, Art.49 OCA, Art.52 OCA
Each construction contains all the necessary information for the solution of a specific legal problem:
- provisions of enactments;
- expert comments;
- specific words of art;
- sample documents;
- private notes and resolutions;
Each user can develop and enrich the construction adding unspecified self selected acts, provisions, rulings and other kinds of legal information to it. The enriched construction is saved and added to the heading of ‘My Constructions’. Through this mechanism the preservation of the experience and the outcomes of each specific case examined by the useris ensured.
Users can exchange constructions by e-mail or in the form of files.
Each user can send his own original constructions with the purpose of their inclusion in the general product base. By means of this opportunity a development of the product may be expected through addition of constructions originating in the process of administration of law.
The user implements all functions to process, search, receive and save the information in the construction uniform environment.
After the texts of the provisions, rulings etc., needed for the case solution, they are exported to the text editor (Microsoft Word) and the user may complete his work on the case analysis, creating a new decision, commentary, opinion, article etc.
