The portal for the publication of legislation in Luxembourg is entirely built on an RDF "legal knowledge
graph" of the legislation (legislations are linked through typed links
amends/repeals/consolidates/transposes etc.).
The portal for data access and SPARQL queries is at
Legislation URIs are dereferencables, e.g. "curl -L --header "Accept:

Some visual benefits :

   - a timeline navigation in the civil code at the top of the page at
   - a graph visualization of the legislation links at
   - autocomplete on the search field uses controlled vocabularies (try
   searching for "travail" (work), you will get keywords, ministries, and
   organisations as autocomplete proposals)

The european legislation portal is also built on
the same kind of legislation knowledge graph.
European member states + EU legislation are progressively interlinking
their legislations with each others using the ELI framework :, thus creating the basis of a legal knowledge
graph at web scale.

Hope this helps.
