Alternative phrasing?

The following example is given above:

Voici la date à partir de laquelle la loi prend effet.

Would the following give essentially the same meaning?

Voici la date auquelle la loi prend effet.

Bonjour Brian,

Both statement don't mean exactly the same:

Voici la date à partir de laquelle la loi prend effet. = Here's the date when [lit: from which] the law comes into effect.

Voici la date à laquelle la loi prend effet. = Here's the date [lit: at which] the law comes into effect.

 

I hope this is helpful.

Bonne journée !
