Law New – What is a Law?

Law new

A law, or statute, is an official rule that governs behavior within a society or country. Laws are usually created by a legislative body such as Congress, but can also be passed by a court or another government agency.

All legislation begins with a policy idea. These ideas can come from a senator’s constituents, an organization that advocates for a change in the law, or State officials. Once a bill is drafted (a process that requires specialized legal training), it can be considered by the Senate.

Once a bill is passed by both houses of the Legislature, it becomes a law. The Governor has 10 days to sign a bill, or veto it. A vetoed bill can still become law if two-thirds of both houses of the Legislature vote to override it. Laws can be divided into different categories such as property, administrative, constitutional and criminal law. This article focuses on property law, which includes real and personal property. Property laws can be further subdivided into rights in rem and rights in personam.
