Common law VS Civil LawWatch
Then I came across these terms.
So my question is: is common law the law practiced by the crown and our legal system? If not WTH is it?
Off the top of my head:
Common law is a legal system where laws can be set by precedent (through the judiciary) as well as by statute (through the legislative)
Civil law tends to deal with interpersonal dispute resolution and injuries to specific legal persons (which may include companies and the Crown)
These may not be 100% accurate, so please do check me up on them
Civil law is the system of law generally practiced in Europe. Unlike common law which is governed by individual precedents, civil law is where the courts operate within a single, codified body of law and uses that code of laws as its frame of reference. Precedence has lesser store there.
What do you mean? Civil vs Roman? Civil vs common? Common vs Roman?
I can't answer that - nobody can. It's comes down to advantages vs disadvantages, but predominantly it's down to cultural choice.
Well, was just hoping for a generic opinion on it really.
