Filters are used to define very precisely the search, thereby obtaining less results but far more relevant.
Five filters are common to all sections: category, headnote, quoted rules, title and date. Additionally, depending on the content searched these other filter options will open:
In Legislation: territorial scopes and legislative range
In Caselaw: successful party, decision type and summary
In Books and Journals: author and summary
In Forms and Contracts: document type
In Collective Labor Agreements: territorial scopes, type, activity and code
