To give preferred treatment to branch of law and its subordinate subjects, arrange elements as follows, using criminal courts of Australia as an example:
Base number: 34
Branch of law: Criminal law, 5
One or more digits indicating a subject subordinate to specific branch of law or type of original material: Example: 1 Courts (from 345.0’1’ under 345 Criminal Law) Note that the 0 has been removed. So if you need to check the number in Dewey again, you will need to add the 0 again to find the number.
