  English law
By 1250 the royal judges had amalgamated the various local customs into the system of common law – that is, law common to the whole country.
During the 19th century virtually the whole of English law was reformed by legislation;; for example, the number of capital offences was greatly reduced.
A unique feature of English law is the doctrine of judicial precedents, whereby the reported decisions of the courts form a binding source of law for future decisions.

 English Law
It is contrasted with statute law, as law not promulgated by the sovereign body; with equity, as the law prevailing between man and man, unless when the court of chancery assumed jurisdiction; and with local or customary law, as the general law for the whole realm, tolerating variations in certain districts and under certain conditions.
As against all these contrasted kinds of law, it may be described broadly as the universal law of the realm, which applies wherever they have not been introduced, and which is supposed to have a principle for every possible case.
And the old common law courts—the king’s bench, common pleas and exchequer—were always, as compared with the court’ of chancery, distinguished for a certain narrowness and technicality of reasoning.

 English Law - Foundations
Actions in the common law courts were initiated by writs obtained from the Chancery (the office of the Chancellor and a skilled body of clerks(4*).
The circumscription of the law within the framework of the writ system (together with a temporary restriction on the office of the Chancellor to create new writs) acted as a brake on the development of the common law.
The earliest examples of enacted laws in England were the ordinances of the Curia Regis (the King and his council), which, in the early Norman period, was the governing body of the realm.

Note that the common law is designated "common" because it was a law common to all of England and administered by a central court, as distinguished from the customary law that varied, albeit often only in minor ways, from county to county, lordship to lordship, or manor to manor.
The preservation of existing laws as was represented by traditions and cultural rules, to early man, at least, was of greater concern then putting up with bad laws: change was what men feared: change and its social upheaval was what brought on suffering and death.
That men should enjoy the fruits of their labour, that the law of property should be known, that the law of marriage should be known, that the whole course of life should be kept in a calculable track, is the summum bonum of early ages, the first desire of semi-civilized mankind.

This means that, in deciding a particular case, the court must have regard to the principles of law laid down in earlier reported cases on the same, or similar points, although the law may be extended or varied if the facts of the particular case are sufficiently different.
In fact, many aspects of the law shown here are also controlled by statute law (which is the other sort of law made by Parliament) but as a general heading, these matters can be grouped together as based on or originating in on common law.
It is against the law to trespass on any land (and that includes land covered by water such as rivers or lakes) or in any building.

The crux of the case relied on the Bill of Rights 1689 which was referred to by Lord Justice Laws in the Metric Martyrs Judgment (18th February 2002 at the Royal Courts of Justice) as being a ‘constitutional statute’ and therefore incapable of implied repeal.
If laws are on the statute book, it is a hostage to fortune that some bloody-minded politician will resurrect and use them, even though they are no longer relevant to today’s circumstances………….
But you only need to look at how modern laws are stretched by the police and others – holding a heckler at the Labour Party conference and a cyclist in Dundee under anti-terrorist laws, or arresting a women harmlessly reading out the names of war dead by the Cenotaph in London’s Whitehall.
