Re: Tribal law (common law) vs Civilized people law (civil law)

And the most important problem with tribal law is that it's considered by many to be a system that is not interested in finding the truth, the thing that is supposed to be the purpose of justice systems. https://www.theatlantic.com/international/archive/2012/06/americas-english-style-legal-system-e...

Re: Tribal law (common law) vs Civilized people law (civil law)

Latin Law may refer to the time when laws were writen in latin in europe, however it would be a time period of legal history rather than refering to a legal system. The UK has three distinct ...

Re: Tribal law (common law) vs Civilized people law (civil law)

you show a complete lack of understanding o the different legal systems and get mixed up with terms. there is no such thing as latin law, latin is a language that is found in common and civil law.

you have tried arguing this before, if I remember about the TOS.
