    Default What are Types of Authorities

    Hello everyone!

    Let me just start out saying that this is a great forum and i now have a reason to engage in it!

    I am trying to do my assignment but I'm not sure what they are asking for the questions. Can anyone give me any idea on what they are asking for?

    Thanks

    This is something you need to discuss with your teacher/professor.

    Or Google 'authority in law'. You can read all day.

    And Googling would be WAY faster than the time it takes to register here, wait for the email, verify the account...

    Somehow I doubt the professor would appreciate OP going to a forum to do her/his homework, too.

    You get a F for not doing your own research.

    Sometimes it can be difficult to research something if you don't understand the concept/language being used. The terminology of "authority" confused me a bit in the beginning...oh so many years ago, as well.

    However, the correct resolution to that problem is to talk to the professor - not to go out to the internet and have a friendly forum do the work.

    All of the answers are in the course text. You need to read it. If you professor asks you, "what is the legal authority for a statute" you need to be able to answer a question like that off the top of your head. You have to be able to explain the difference between primary authorities that are controlling vs. only persuasive. Giving those answers to you here would do you a big disservice because you could never actually understand it until you struggled to get it yourself. That's the point of what you are doing - the struggle with the material is how learning occurs. People don't refuse to answer you here because they don't know or because they are being mean. Unless you personally struggle with the material you will never learn it.

    Don't get me wrong, Im not asking for the answers. I was just trying to have someone explain it to me. This class is a online class and they don't respond back sometimes if at all.

    Also i did read Chapter 2. So from my understanding their is 4 types of authorities.
