This LibGuide gives an overview of the sources of law for the Federal government. The guide is divided into sections that you can access using the tabs at the top of the page. The Executive, Judicial, and Legislative sections each examine a branch of the Federal government and explain how each branch contributes to the law governing the United States. There is also section of the guide that discusses the system of checks and balances between the branches of the Federal government that ensures that one branch does not have too much power over the Federal system as a whole.
The sources covered by this LibGuide have been divided into these easy to use tabs:
