The four laws that were passed in the Intolerable Acts were the Boston Port Act, the Massachusetts Government Act, the Impartial Administration of Justice Act and the Quartering Act. It was known as the Coercive Act in Great Britain, and it was passed by the British Parliament and was signed into law by King George in 1774.

The Boston Port Act shut down the Boston Ports until the colonists remunerated Great Britain for the Boston Tea Party incident. The Massachusetts Government Act prohibited meetings unless permitted by the royal governor.

The Impartial Administration of Justice Act stated that any British officer accused of a major crime would be tried in Great Britain or anywhere in the Empire, if the defendant could not get a trial in Massachusetts. The Quartering Act forced colonist to host British troops in their homes.
