In common law systems[ edit ] Criminal cases In the common law tradition, courts decide the law applicable to a case by interpreting statutes and applying precedents , which record how and why prior cases have been decided. Unlike most civil law systems, common law systems follow the doctrine of stare decisis , by which most courts are bound by their own previous decisions in similar cases. According to stare decisis, all lower courts should make decisions consistent with the previous decisions of higher courts. A notable example of when the court has overturned its precedent is, in the case of R v Jogee ; where the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom ruled that they and the other courts of England and Wales had misapplied the law for nearly 30 years. Generally speaking, higher courts do not have direct oversight over the lower courts of record , in that they cannot reach out on their initiative sua sponte at any time to overrule judgments of the lower courts.
The necessary analysis called ratio decidendi , then constitutes a precedent binding on other courts; further analyses not strictly necessary to the determination of the current case are called obiter dicta , which constitute persuasive authority but are not technically binding. By contrast, decisions in civil law jurisdictions are generally shorter, referring only to statutes.
The reason for this difference is that these civil law jurisdictions adhere to a tradition that the reader should be able to deduce the logic from the decision and the statutes. Some pluralist systems, such as Scots law in Scotland and types of civil law jurisdictions in Quebec and Louisiana , do not precisely fit into the dual common-civil law system classifications.
These types of systems may have been heavily influenced by the Anglo-American common law tradition; however, their substantive law is firmly rooted in the civil law tradition. Because of their position between the two main systems of law, these types of legal systems are sometimes referred to as mixed systems of law.
Law professors traditionally have played a much smaller role in developing case law in common law than professors in civil law. Because court decisions in civil law traditions are historically brief and not formally amenable to establishing precedent, much of the exposition of the law in civil law traditions is done by academics rather than by judges; this is called doctrine and may be published in treatises or in journals such as Recueil Dalloz in France.
Historically, common law courts relied little on legal scholarship; thus, at the turn of the twentieth century, it was very rare to see an academic writer quoted in a legal decision except perhaps for the academic writings of prominent judges such as Coke and Blackstone.
Today academic writers are often cited in legal argument and decisions as persuasive authority ; often, they are cited when judges are attempting to implement reasoning that other courts have not yet adopted, or when the judge believes the academic's restatement of the law is more compelling than can be found in case law.
Thus common law systems are adopting one of the approaches long-held in civil law jurisdictions. Judges may refer to various types of persuasive authority to reach a decision in a case. Some bodies are given statutory powers to issue guidance with persuasive authority or similar statutory effect, such as the Highway Code.
In federal or multi-jurisdictional law systems, there may exist conflicts between the various lower appellate courts. It is a subsidiary of The Pew Charitable Trusts. Public trust in government near historic lows Date.
