As a law student, comment on the expression" arms of the state" and " arms of the government"
Arm of the State refers to an entity or an organization created by a state. It operates as an alter ego or instrumentality of the state. For example, state university or a state department of natural resources. Generally, courts in the U.S. find an entity to be an arm of the state if it operates without substantial autonomy from state regulation.
The three arms of the government include the Executive, Legislative (Senate and House of Representatives), and Judicial (Supreme Court and lower Courts). The President of the United States administers the Executive Branch of our government.
