Today’s Tip: Look for regulations.
Most legal researchers are cognizant that they should check for a statute on their topic. My tip today is a reminder to also look for regulatory, policy, and other delegated legisaltion.
Some regulation reminders:
- Regulation making power is always spelled out in a section of the statute.
- The authority to make a regulation does not necessarily mean that a regulation exists.
- Some regulations have the authority to change the wording of an act.
- Regualtions come into force on the day they are filed unless they state otherwise in a ciming into force section
Thanks to Dino for the question that inspired this Tip.
