Decree vs. law vs. act

What’s the difference among “decree” and “law” and “act”?

Are they interchangeable (in legal sense) or there exists subtle difference among these three English words?

Would someone please help me clarify this “mistery”?

Thank you very much.

    What’s the difference among “decree” and “law” and “act”?

    先說比較普騙常用的:

    1. law 是一般名詞通用在有寫下來或沒有寫下來的 對人事物 的原則與限制 例子有: laws of physics, common laws, statutory laws.

    2. act - 是 act of Congress的簡寫. 是專指"具體條文的法案".例子有: Taiwan Relations Act.

    3. decree 就不是法條了.她是"法官"對法條 的解釋 語因而 做出來的 "命令".它是有法律效用的. 與"行政機關"的executive order不一樣.後者沒有法律效用,對尾龜者不行用法權來置財.只能用行政制裁.

    Are they interchangeable (in legal sense) or there exists subtle difference among these three English words?

    Nope, they are all quite different and not interchangeable.

    Would someone please help me clarify this “mistery”?

    So, should I be kind and put Orange dude out of mystery once for all?

    Thank you very much.

    Now you owe me $40.
