Law of the United States

The United States Constitution

The law of the United States comprises many levels[1] of codified and uncodified forms of law, of which the most important is the United States Constitution, the foundation of the federal government of the United States. The Constitution sets out the boundaries of federal law, which consists of acts of Congress,[2]treaties ratified by the Senate,[3] regulations promulgated by the executive branch,[4] and case law originating from the federal judiciary.[5] The United States Code is the official compilation and codification of general and permanent federal statutory law.

Common Law

At both the federal and state levels, the law of the United States was mainly derived from the common law system of English law , which was in force at the time of the Revolutionary War. However, U.S. law has diverged greatly from its English ancestor both in terms of substance and procedure. It has incorporated a number of civil law innovations.

We read every letter, fax, or e-mail we receive, and we will convey your comments to CIA officials outside OPA as appropriate. However, with limited staff and resources, we simply cannot respond to all who write to us.

The United States Isn't a Country — It's a Corporation!

Someone using the name "Reality Bytes" published (no earlier than 2010) a ripoff of this article on The Hub under the title The Corporation Of The United States Of America Is It True? We Are Not Under Common Law? [Curiously, this link to the Wayback Machine no longer leads to an archived copy of "Reality Bytes"’ page as at 2011-07-20 but instead produces a pop-up inviting you to download an .swf file, which may be malware.] This person is now claiming copyright infringement. This is laughable. "Reality Bytes" is a blatant plagiarizer, as shown by the textual comparisons below.
