A '''''senatus consultum''''' is an official statement and advice of the [[Senate (Nova Roma)|Senate]] to the executive [[:Category:Magistrates (Nova Roma)|magistrates]]. Though it is officially an "advice" from the Senate to a magistrate, and technically these decrees do not have to be obeyed, in practice, they usually are. If a ''senatus consultum'' conflicts with a [[List of leges (Nova Roma)|law]] that has been passed by the [[Comitia (Nova Roma)|comitia]], the law overrides the ''senatus consultum'', because the ''senatus consultum'' has its authority based in precedent, and not in law. A ''senatus consultum'', however, can serve to interpret a law.

A Senatus consultumcan address any issue the Senate so chooses to address, unless prevented by the Constitution from doing so, or a higher legal authority.
