I have expanded this definition. Also, it seemed overly focussed on the US so I have edited those references out. If you are talking about the common law you are talking about a substantial number of countries which includes the US. The common law does not centre on the US. In fact the US is probably somewhat isolated from other common law jurisdictions.--Horace 19:04, 22 February 2007 (EST)

Precedent rather than statute

I have removed the sentence contained in the introductory paragraph that stated that the common law was a system that worked on precedent as opposed to statute because that concept is dealt with as one of the three meanings that are referred to in the dot points below. --JarradD 19:00, 27 July 2011 (EDT)
