Reilly, S. A. (n.d.). Our Legal Heritage. Retrieved from

Preface This was written to see what laws have been in existence for a long time and therefore have proven their success in maintaining a stable society. It?s purpose is also to see the historical context in which our legal doctrines were derived. It looks at the inception of the common law system, the origin of the jury system, the meaning in context of the Magna Carta provisions, the emergence of attorneys, and the formation of probate law from church origins.
