The main source for the civil law system consist of: Constitution, legislation “statutes and subsidiary”, customary, international law and judicial precedents and conventions. For the common law system sources, it contain: Constitution (not in the UK), legislation “statutes and subsidiary legislation”, judicial precedent “common law and equity”, custom, convention and international Law . Basically, common law frameworks make reference to statute law, case law or judicial precedents and for the civil law statutes and other subsidiary legislations are the main sources for laws
These views are according to rules which are not based on individual beliefs. This therefore implies that Lord Steyn's statement is valid as the UK constitution is controlled through a monarch. The role of appointing the prime minister is also fulfilled by the monarch. This is not a statute but has been followed as a convention for many years. A historical element to the UK's constitution is that the Royal prerogative gives powers to the Crown, which include the right to
The legal system is a big web with different branches that go off to different areas the two different types of law that needs addressing is substantive law and procedural law. Which sounds similar but two very different parts of the law. Substantial law is how people and/or the state should act. Procedural law is how the legal laws should act in regards to implementation. But in the end procedural law is a stem of a form of substantial law.
Under the English Judicature Acts 1873-5 the Supreme Court of Judicature was established with concurrent jurisdiction to administer the rules of equity and law within a uniform procedural code. This was followed in Ireland by the Judicature (Ireland) Act 1877.Today the same judges administer both law and equity. Changes produced by the Interaction of Equity and Common law Equity was not a complete alternative to the common law. Instead it provided a gloss on the law. It added to and improved the common law.
This excerpt is dedicated to the legislative power, he talk about how the laws are and how they represent the country that the people live in. He goes into the detail for each of the law that the monarch represented, but this shows also that people in the colonies also had some of a say in the laws that were created in the colonies. He also talks about the office holders and talks about the kind of power that they have and the power that they represent. Finally the article by Thomas Paine Common Sense, was talking about the American Independence. He talks generally about the government and religion, but be also touches upon the colonies and what the colonists went through under the British Monarch.
The Magna Carta, signed in 1215, mainly secured liberties for England’s elite classes, but it has helped the fundamental principles of common law in constitutions around the world. The Magna Carta's influence on the constitution allowed specific rights from it be included in the US Constitution's Bill of Rights. An example of this would be the similarities between the Magna Carta's thirty ninth clause and the Bill of Rights seventh and fifth amendment. “No free man shall be seized or imprisoned … except by the lawful judgement of his equals or by the law of the land” (Magna Carta, clause 39).This clause refers to the guarantee that courts will
The Introduction The precedent is a decided legal case, which is used as a basis for deciding later similar cases. The English Law system is a legal system where the precedent has a great weight. This law system can be subdivided into two main interrelated branches: statute (or statutory) law and common law. Statute is an Act of Parliament, which starts its life as a bill, goes through the parliament, receives royal assent and becomes law.  Common law works in a different way, the judges rather than the Parliament make common law or ‘judge-made law’.
7th Amendment to the Constitution The 7th amendment to the constitution of the United States was formulated and then ratified as a part of the famous Bill of Rights. This specific Amendment defines a citizen’s right to trial by a jury and in the Bill of Rights, it is mentioned quite frequently. It was fundamentally designed to prevent the establishment of dictatorial courts of justice, where the judges’ decisions were subjected to the control and whims of the government. Just as the first ten amendments to the constitution of the United States, the seventh amendment also plays a prominent role in the American legal and political theory. Even, in the Declaration of Independence, the right to trial by jury was present, in which the Founding Fathers denounced the dictatorial courts created by the British
The legislative branch should not be solely responsible only making the laws so we have other branches approve the laws. Montesquieu introduces separation of powers by using Locke's idea on natural rights and using it to create separation of powers. He also shows checks and balances and limited government. Montesquieu's ideas is represented by what we now know as checks and balances. Not only did John Locke and Baron de Montesquieu influenced- the United States Constitution, but Voltaire did as well.
We also have the responsibly to follow all the laws the government makes. Those are some of our rights and responsibilities as Americans. There are many more if you look in the U.S. Constitution. My thesis statement is, American citizenship rights and responsibilities shown in the U.S. Constitution originate from the English

When comparing all branches an easy way to look at them is an executive is the law, essentially the president. Whereas legislature is where laws are being made, or denied.
