Law/Patents - Law (general)
Hebrew term or phrase: עיקר מעייניה
This phrase occurs in a legal document, referring to a country's laws, saying that a person who violates a law also violates עיקר מעייניה. Literally it seems to mean Principal Wellsprings, but, of course, that does not fit.

I also see it used in the following contexts:

כאשר עיקר מעייניה מוקדשים לנושא קליטת העלייה

עיקר מעייניה נתונים למתן מענה לצרכי האוכלוסיה

עיקר מעייניה הוא עיצוב חייו של הפרט
