Civil Law (Legal System)
The common-law system prevails in England, the United States, and other countries colonized by England. We should know also that The common-law system is used in all the states of the United States except Louisiana ! Also used in Canada, except in the Province of Quebec

What exactly religions law is. For many religions, religious law is thought to be a higher body of understanding in which reality and knowledge is defined by God and is applicable to all human beings. This is, of course, a rather simplistic view of .religious law as there are many different religions, each trying to establish their own concepts and ideas as to what religious law should include.
Religious law as both a source of law and as an influencing factor on the development of traditional law is a topic that cannot be ignored. In some cases, religious law is central to the traditional laws of the country, typically in Islamic or Jewish countries. In other areas, such as the UK, religious law is rooted in the history of the law, although more traditional methods of interpretation and precedent have taken a more important role in modern society.
.Religious law is derived from two primary sources: the civil law tradition as followed by Catholic, Anglican and Orthodox religions and the more customary basis such as Sharia law that is more akin to common law principles.
The civil law system is derived from the Roman Corpus Juris Civilus of Emperor Justinian I
and we can say also a civil law is the group of legal ideas and systems ultimately derived from the Code of Justinian, but heavily overlaid by Napoleonic, Germanic, canonical, feudal, and local practices, as well as doctrinal strains such as natural law, codification, and legal positivism.
