Introduction Print Page


United States law is divided into three types, which parallel the three branches of government: Statutory Law, or the laws passed by the legislative branch; Administrative Law, or the rules and regulations created and enforced by the executive branch; and Case Law, the interpretations of statutory and executive law given by the judicial system. These same structures apply at the state level. And each branch of government publishes its portion of the law separately.
