Regulations are made by bodies appointed by Parliament by such an authority and not by Parliament itself. This allows for greater efficiency within government, as Parliament does not need to be consulted to enact or amend laws frequently. Regulation is therefore a subordinate legal form. Although regulations have binding legal effects, they generally set out general rules rather than specific rules. Jurisprudence, also known as common law, includes judicial decisions or judicial law. The ultimate authority of the law in a country, a constitution, establishes the mode of organization of the state, establishes the institutions of the state, regulates the functions of the ministry and regulates the relations between the individual and the state. Case law may be binding depending on the jurisdiction and place of jurisdiction. Statute cases are important because when a court makes a decision, a section must be interpreted so that the interpretation becomes law. Statutes are laws of the legislature. These are laws that are passed at the federal or provincial/territorial level.
Although the statutes should be in accordance with the Constitution, they are less stable and are regularly amended and revised. Except for historical purposes, the most recent revision of a law should be used. In Canada, the Constitution includes the Constitution Act, 1867 and the Constitution Act, 1982. The Nexis Uni database contains an index of Canadian and U.S. cases that can be searched by citation, parties involved, jurisdiction, judge or subject.
