Constitutional Status of Islamic Law Recently amended Article 2A to the Constitution of Bangladesh, provides that the state religion of the Republic is Islam, but the State shall ensure equal status and equal right in the practice of the Hindu, Buddhist, Christian and other religions. While the Government generally respects this provision in practice, religion exerts a powerful influence on politics, and the Government is sensitive to the Muslim consciousness of its political allies and the majority of its citizens.
Citizens generally are free to practice the religion of their choice; however, police are normally ineffective in upholding law and order and are often slow to assist members of religious minorities who have been victims of crimes. Although the Government states that acts of violence against members of religious minority groups are politically or economically motivated and cannot be solely attributed to religion, human rights activists reported an increase in religiously motivated violence.
Government The President, while the Head of State article 48 2 , the Bangladesh Constitution, , holds largely a ceremonial post to appoint the Prime Minister and the Chief Justice articles 56 and 95, the Bangladesh Constitution, ; the real power is held by the Prime Minister, who is the Head of Government.

In the Caretaker Government, the President had control over the Ministry of Defense, the authority to declare a state of emergency, and the power to dismiss the Chief Adviser and other members of the Caretaker Government. Once national election was held and a new government and Parliament were in place, the President's powers and position revert to their largely ceremonial role.

It proclaimed fundamental human rights, including freedom of speech , freedom of religion , freedom of movement , freedom of assembly , the right to education and public healthcare among others. A two thirds vote of parliament was required to amend the constitution. After winning the general election, the Awami League government often flouted constitutional rules and principles.
The government received strong criticism from the Bangladeshi press, including both Bengali and English newspapers. The Awami League enacted three constitutional amendments between and The most drastic amendment was in January It introduced a one party state and a presidential government, while the judiciary's independence was greatly curtailed. Constitutional rule was suspended on 15 August with the assassination of President Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and the declaration of martial law.
The Chief Martial Law Administrator issued a series of Proclamation Orders between and which amended the constitution.

We will learn in chapter 20 that much of the law regarding business entities—for example, the laws of corporations, partnerships, and limited liability companies—is state statutory law.
The various state codes are available here. The President is a source of law because he can sign or veto bills passed by the federal legislature i.
Executive orders are binding edicts issued by the President for the purpose of interpreting or implementing a provision of the federal laws or policies; they are usually directed to a federal administrative agency and its officials. For example, in January President George W. Treaties are agreements between the United States and one or more other countries. An example of a treaty is the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations Vienna Convention , which the United States ratified with the advice and consent of the Senate in The Optional Protocol is a helpful treaty to discuss for two reasons.
First, the United States withdrew from the Optional Protocol in Whether a treaty is self-executing or non-self-executing depends on the language of the treaty. Each of the states also has an executive—that is, a governor. Governors have similar powers and duties in their state governments as the President does in the federal government.
A court is a governmental body of one or more judges who preside over cases and resolve disputes by issuing judgments. In the United States, there is a dual court system. There is a federal court system and each state and territory has its own court system.
We will learn the structure of the federal and state court systems in chapters 6 and 7, respectively. The courts are a source of law for two reasons. First, courts may engage in judicial review. This judge-made law—called common law—is the body of law resulting from cases.
The common law in the United States is a holdover from the English common law, which originated during the Anglo-Saxon period in England and developed further after the Norman conquest of England by William the Conqueror and his troops in He brought local custom including some that predated the Norman conquest to the national level, put an end to local control, and reinstated the citizen jury system.
A discussion of judicial review and the common law leads to the concepts of precedent and stare decisis. When a case is decided, the decision is thereafter a precedent, that is, a reason for deciding a similar case the same way. There are two types of precedent—binding and persuasive. Binding precedent is precedent that must be applied or followed by a court.
It applies when a lower court is considering a case similar to a case previously decided by higher court in its jurisdiction.
