    Definite article

    When we use, within a legal context, the words "law", "regulation", "norm" etc., followed by numbers, is it correct to use the definite article?

    Should I use, for example:

    "according to the Law 122/1973" or "according to Law 122/1973"?

    Thank you,

    Similar to "Volume IX, Paragraph 6, Case No. 1234, etc." without articles.
