NAME

SemanticWeb::Schema::Legislation - A legal document such as an act

VERSION

version v6.0.1

DESCRIPTION

A legal document such as an act, decree, bill, etc. (enforceable or not) or a component of a legal act (like an article).

ATTRIBUTES

legislation_applies

legislationApplies

Indicates that this legislation (or part of a legislation) somehow transfers another legislation in a different legislative context. This is an informative link, and it has no legal value. For legally-binding links of transposition, use the legislationTransposes property. For example an informative consolidated law of a European Union's member state "applies" the consolidated version of the European Directive implemented in it.

_has_legislation_applies

legislation_changes

legislationChanges

Another legislation that this legislation changes. This encompasses the notions of amendment, replacement, correction, repeal, or other types of change. This may be a direct change (textual or non-textual amendment) or a consequential or indirect change. The property is to be used to express the existence of a change relationship between two acts rather than the existence of a consolidated version of the text that shows the result of the change.
