From Queen to commoner, we must all render obedience to the law. “Justice, Sir,” said Daniel Webster, “is the great interest of man on earth.” Law is something that changes and can be altered if justice demands it. English law is partly written and partly unwritten. Written law is statute law and it consists of acts of parliament. A good deal of English law rests on custom, or what has been done before, and is called common law.
