The main objective of the Law class is to:
Content in the Law class on the European Commission website provides contextual content on, for example, EU law, rules, treaties,
judgments and explains:
Links from ec.europa.eu/info to EUR-Lex from within the Law class allow users to access more detailed content on specific measures.
Links from ec.europa.eu/info to the Have your say consultation tool (created under the Better regulation project) allow users to contribute to EU policy development and law-making.
The class indicated in the header or footer of a Commission website links to its landing page. For example: the Law class.
As with other classes, the Law class architecture is based on research and analysis of top tasks, user needs,
organisational goals and analytics.
