This unit will examine the principal features of the legal system originally developed in the English speaking world reviewed by reference to the origin and purpose of the main institutions, the evolution and significance of some of the central doctrines and consideration of the work and contribution of some of the notable foundation participants. The study of the unit is given contemporary relevance by a process of reviewing the link between the past institutions, principles and mechanisms of our early justice system with those of the modern legal systems and by a contrast with the institutions, values and procedures of a selection of other non-English speaking and jurisdictions.
