Summary/Abstract: The English common law has its roots in the times of William the Conqueror who invaded England in 1066. He is known to be the one who has laid the foundations of the English legal system. At that time, the system comprised of a series of oral rules and it was of high importance to have a unitary, national legal system. This article examines the specific legal institutions: personal property, real property, settlement and trust in order to provide the reader an overview of some of the key aspects to understand its mechanism. The research methods used facilitate the reader’s perception of the common law and its role in the society.
