There are many ways to do what you want in R. I am showing one way
using one of my favorite graphics packages, ggplot2. If you do not
have it installed yet, uncomment the first line.
library(ggplot2) #load the package

samp.dat <- structure(list(YEAR = c(1988L, 1988L, 1988L, 1988L, 1989L,
1989L, 1989L, 1989L, 1990L, 1990L, 1990L, 1990L), AREA =
structure(c(1L, 3L, 2L, 4L, 1L, 3L, 2L, 4L, 1L, 3L, 2L, 4L), .Label =
c("CONTRACTS", "FAMILY", "INTERNATIONAL", "TAXATION"), class =
"factor"), CASES = c(286L, 189L, 385L, 177L, 233L, 431L, 425L, 201L,
190L, 302L, 303L, 209L)), .Names = c("YEAR", "AREA", "CASES"), class =
"data.frame", row.names = c(NA, -12L))
ggplot(data=samp.dat, aes(x=YEAR, y=CASES, group=AREA, colour=AREA)) +
