The legal system in the United States of America

The United States is a federal republic presidential-style. American experience, and the United Federation maintain different spheres of competence, the boundaries of which, however, have never been made sufficiently rigid and absolute. The best summary of the division of powers between states and the Federation is probably contained in the tenth amendment to the Constitution, according to which the powers that are not expressly granted to the Federal Government and which are not subtracted from the Constitution itself to the jurisdiction of individual states, are reserved to the latter.

Specifically, among the powers withdrawn from the competence of the Member and expressly attributed to Congress, as provided in Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution, it is worth mentioning, among others, to lay and collect taxes, to regulate the international trade in and between the various states of the federation to legislate on bankruptcy, to manage the postal system, to constitute tribunals inferior to the Supreme Court and to legislate in the field of intellectual property.

Individual states, however, with the consent of the Government and within the limits set by the latter, enjoy an autonomous legislative power. In principle, it can be said, in conclusion, that in the U.S. federal system of private law was largely under state jurisdiction. The Constitution of the United States adopted in 1789 and amended only rarely since then, is the supreme law of the country.
