Hierarchical relationships

The legal thesaurus is, in part, based on a hierarchical structure.

The subject headings are faceted. This clearly shows the hierarchy to which each concept belongs. Please note that these hierarchies are constructed to aid searching and do not necessarily reflect formal scientific categories.
