A case named Entick v. Carrington  is a constitutional principle deriving from the common law. John Entick 's house was searched and ransacked by Sherriff Carrington.
Carrington argued that a warrant from a Government minister, the Earl of Halifax was valid authority, even though there was no statutory provision or court order for it.
The court, led by Lord Camden stated that, "The great end, for which men entered into society, was to secure their property.
That right is preserved sacred and incommunicable in all instances, where it has not been taken away or abridged by some public law for the good of the whole. By the laws of England, every invasion of private property, be it ever so minute, is a trespass If no excuse can be found or produced, the silence of the books is an authority against the defendant, and the plaintiff must have judgment. Common law nations, such as those in the Commonwealth as well as the United States, derive their legal systems from that of the United Kingdom, and as such place emphasis on judicial precedent,     whereby consequential court rulings especially those by higher courts are a source of law.
Civil law jurisdictions, on the other hand, place less emphasis on judicial review and only the parliament or legislature has the power to effect law. As a result, the structure of the judiciary differs significantly between the two, with common law judiciaries being adversarial and civil law judiciaries being inquisitorial. Common law judicatures consequently separate the judiciary from the prosecution,    thereby establishing the courts as completely independent from both the legislature and law enforcement.
Human rights law in these countries is as a result, largely built on legal precedent in the courts' interpretation of constitutional law, whereas that of civil law countries is almost exclusively composed of codified law, constitutional or otherwise. Main article: Parliamentary procedure Another main function of constitutions may be to describe the procedure by which parliaments may legislate.
For instance, special majorities may be required to alter the constitution. In bicameral legislatures, there may be a process laid out for second or third readings of bills before a new law can enter into force.
Alternatively, there may further be requirements for maximum terms that a government can keep power before holding an election. Study of constitutional law[ edit ] The examples and perspective in this article may not represent a worldwide view of the subject.
