Legal System • Two main types of legal systems: common law and civil law. • In common law systems, laws are found in the decisions of judges and statutes. • Common law counties include the United Kingdom and former colonies of the United Kingdom, such as Australia. • The civil law system means that all laws, both substantive and procedural, are contained in comprehensive documents called ‘codes’. • Civil law countries include most states in continental Europe, and former colonies of these countries. Common Law • The common law began at the end of the 11th century. • It developed its particular characteristics because it was common to all of England and Wales. • The relative stability of government in England over subsequent centuries allowed it to grow.
