Law and Legislation

The law is a language that lawyers and judges use when they try to prevent or resolve problems—human conflicts—using official rules made by the state as their starting point. These rules come in the form of written constitutions (federal and state), statutes and regulations (laws written by legislatures and administrative agencies), and judicial decisions that interpret these written constitutions, statutes, and regulations. They also come in the form of judicial decisions which fill in gaps in the written law. We call this latter form of gap-filling judicial decision “common law.”

Thank you so much for your organization. I truly am most appreciative of the financial gift. This is such a rarity for teachers. In fact, finding a no-cost professional development can be a difficulty. You showed respect by providing a no-cost training, a delicious lunch, and a stipend. Thank you so very much. Looking forward to future newsletters and workshops! Thank you for helping teachers grow in their knowledge of a most important subject and cause: civics education.
