This guide covers the law of England and Wales.  Like the U.S., England has a common law system.  However, there are several major differences:

  • England has no written constitution.
  • There is no official codification of English statutes.
  • Laws passed by Parliament are not subject to review by the courts; only Parliament may change a law that it has enacted.
