Quoting articles of laws(ex. usage of "stipulate", "specify")?

> Article 15 of the Korean Constitution states that “all citizens shall > enjoy the freedom of choice of occupation.” Compared to Article 12 of > the Basic Law, which comprises of three clauses, Article 15 of the > Korean Constitution consists of only one sentence and does not ***specify*** > exercise of occupation. When I write a research paper, I frequently quote or refer to articles or provisions (of laws). I feel I use same expressions repetitively and feel sometimes my expression sound weird. For example, in the sentence above, which would be proper expression between "specify" and "stipulate"?
