The law is a complex and ever-changing body of rules that govern our behavior. Creating laws (or legislating) is a long process that involves many people and groups. It starts with a person, or group of people, proposing an idea for a new rule. That proposal is then discussed, debated, and voted on. If approved, the new rule becomes an official law that everyone must obey. The term “law” generally refers to a written law passed by Congress or another legislative body and signed by the President. It can also refer to the laws of a state or city that are implemented through regulations, ordinances, and executive orders.

New York laws include the state constitution, laws passed by the legislature and periodically codified in the New York Consolidated Laws, and decisions of courts that interpret New York law. The City of New York also passes its own laws through legislation and regulation, known as local laws.

These laws often affect how people do business, what rights they have, and how governments act. They may be enacted by either the legislature or the mayor and are then enforced by the police department or other agencies. Examples of City of New York laws include zoning rules, open captioning in movie theaters, and requirements for certain types of employment.

The City’s lawmaking branch is called the Council of the City of New York, which consists of the City Council and the Borough Presidents. The Council members each serve on several committees and are responsible for many different issues in the City. The Council also has a judicial review authority. The judicial review authority is designed to ensure that the City has laws that are consistent with the Constitution and laws of the United States.

A federal court of appeals ruled that the Trump administration overstepped its constitutional authority in a controversial immigration policy that was set to take effect this week. The case is a significant test of the power of the courts to check executive overreach and will have wide implications for the future of immigration enforcement in the country.
