Operation of Law

individual

The manner in which an individual acquires certain rights or liabilities through no act or cooperation of his or her own, but merely by the application of the established legal rules to the particular transaction.

For example, when an individual dies intestate, the laws of DESCENT AND DISTRIBUTION provide for the inheritance of the estate by the heir. The property of the decedent is said to be transferred by operation of law.
