Early American Settlements - How Much is Too Much. In order for any society to be successful there must be some kind of law and order. Without some established rules and regulations little would get done and there would be chaos and confusion. But in turn there is another side to the spectrum. At what point are the rules too much.

Cultural Divide Among Settlers in Colonial America - During the 17th Century, there was a major cultural divide between the rich white settlers in colonial America and the poor white settlers. Many of the poor whites were subjected to indentured servitude, which was in that time one small step away from being a slave. In fact, indentured servants united with slaves in a fight for land and wealth in what is now called Bacon’s Rebellion. There was also a major divide between settlers living in the rural “backcountry” and the city dwellers. The city dwellers were the ones who were involved in the colonial assemblies, and were therefore making decisions which affected the unrepresented backcountry men....   [tags: American History] 745 words

Challenges of Formal and Informal Law - For many years there has been the debate on what constitutes informality and formality in administrative law. Administrative law is the body of law that governs the activities of administrative agencies of government, which include rulemaking, adjudication, or the enforcement of a specific regulatory agenda (Harrington, 2009). Rulemaking and adjudication apply for both formal and informal hearings. Whenever the authorizing statute calls for a hearing on the record this would be a formal hearing, and informal hearings are completed with no record and no adherence to evidentiary rules, and final decisions are made by the agency (Harrington, 2009)....   [tags: informative essay, law]
