Legal Rights and Legislation

When it is stated that you have a 'legal' right about something, the word legal in its common usage means that it is a right or regulation that has been activated by an authorized legal entity.


The United Kingdom parliamentary system is the principle organization used for empowering legal rights to - or for - someone or something.

Legally Enforced Rights - or legally empowered - include several basic types of law, both civil and criminal law.

Each have their own series of legal rights which have been bestowed by a legitimate law making organisation.

There are many other 'rights' which have been 'developed' into laws of rights, such as Human Rights and Natural Rights. These have generally 'evolved' – rather than been empowered in the first instance by law makers.
