Private law

Under the rules of the U.S. Senate, a private law is a private bill enacted into law. Private laws have restricted applicability, often addressing immigration and naturalization issues affecting individuals.[1]

More generally, private law is law, such as a contract between two persons or a real estate transaction, which applies only to the persons who subject themselves to it.
