Abstract:


Simple rules and laws are necessary for the understanding of the meaning and of the content. This is a fundamental claim of all citizens. The instruments of legislation are deeply connected in many countries to the principles of the Roman law and to the ideas of the former centuries. Modern effective aspects, such as visualization, structuring and object-orientation are not focused. One method for handling complex projects is UML, the „Unified Modeling Language“. This tool has served for some years as an instrument in understanding the complex structures of the law, but could also be applied to the complete establishing, admini-stration and development of a new and modern building of law.
