5. Repeat steps 4 and 5 for each new Area of Law that needs to be added.
Each new Area of Law is added to the Requested New Categories list.

6. The Areas of Law can still be edited at this point before being finalised, as follows:
a. Click Update.
The fields of the Area of Law become editable.

b. Edit the fields of the Area of Law.

c. Click the Update button. 

  • At this point it is still possible to edit the Area of Law code. Once the Submit button is clicked the Area of Law can no longer be edited.

7. To request creation of the Area(s) of Law in the Requested New Categories list, click the Submit button.

The Requested New Categories list is removed. A message is displayed indicating that the draft Areas of Law have been submitted to the Yarris support team. The support team will check the Master list to see if the Areas of Law already exist (perhaps with a different name). Once the Areas of Law have been  validated, Yarris support will create them.

Tips & Troubleshooting

  • Areas of Law validated by Yarris will need to have items linked to them. See topic Link Item to Area of Law for more detail.
