Definitions of ADJECTIVE LAW
Sort: Oldest first
The aggregate of rules of procedure or practice. As opposed to that body of law which the courts are established to administer, (called â€œsubstantive law,â€) it means the rules according to which the substantive law is administered. That part of the law which provides a method for enforcing or maintaining rights, or obtaining redress for their invasion.
