The legislative powers of Shireroth, termed the Legislature by constitutional scholars, are vested in the Kaiseress, the Steward, and the Landsraad, in some areas jointly and in others separately.

In 1656, the Landsraad established the Adelsraad and Folksraad as subordinate bodies to allow for a democratic gravitas for laws after the Auspicious Occasion. Under this arrangement, the Landsraad would only pass a bill if it had received the advice and consent of the Adelsraad and the assent of the Folksraad. However, since 1671, neither the Folksraad and Adelsraad have been called to session, and while they officially exist in the Lawbook, people regard these bodies as permanently abolished.
