Bylaws

Rules and practices that govern management of an organization.

Bylaws

Rules established by a company or other organization setting forth details on how it is to be organized. Bylaws do not set forth the basic structure of the company; this is done in the organization's charter. For example, a charter may indicate that the company or organization must have a board of directors, while its bylaws state how many directors there are to be and how often they are elected. Bylaws are approved by shareholders (or the equivalent in other organizations) and may be amended by them.
