Read any section of law, legal brief or the like and you’ll find somebody referencing a section of law simply as §167 or the like.
How do you know the article, title, chapter (i.e. what we’d call it a file pathin I.T.) that contains that section?
The few times I’ve looked up a reference, I had to dig my way down by guessing based on context. I know lawyers have to have a better way (given how valuable/expensive their time is).
