By extension of meaning, bills of rights are sometimes regarded as including the definition and establishment of rights and liberties through tradition or in documents or enactments prior or subsequent to any formal declaration bearing their name. In the United States, where the protections of its Bill of Rights derive significantly from English sources, the general term bill of rights sometimes also includes additional protections that are asserted throughout the federal Constitution (especially in its 14 th Amendment) and enunciated in constitutional decisions of the federal courts.
