Legal Authority

 

the ability of a participant in a legal relation to take certain actions or demand certain actions of another participant in this legal relation; this capability is provided for in the law. Legal authority is guaranteed by the state; if some person fails to perform obligations, a party with legal authority may appeal to a court, arbitration tribunal, or other state agency for protection of his right.
