Types of Legal Systems

Before we elaborate on complex legal issues/matters, we must first broach the basic systems of law. Throughout the world, each and every country contains a legal system embodied with a judiciary system and unique set of laws. Currently, there are three different legal systems: Civil, Common, and Religious Law. Each legal system is very broad, thus, each system contains one-to-many subcategories. However, this is a discussion for another time. For now we will focus our attention on Common Law, the legal system implemented within the United States.
