And in England it hath always been holden, that the king is lord of the whole shore, (g) and particularly is the guardian of the ports and havens, which are the inlets and gates of the realm; (h) and therefore, so early as the reign of king John, we find ships seized by the king’s officers for putting in at a place that was not a legal port. (i) These legal ports were undoubtedly at first assigned by the crown; since to each of them a court of portmote is incident, (j) the jurisdiction of which must flow from the royal authority: the great ports of the sea are also referred to, as well known and established, by statute 4 Hen.

The Roman law (founded first upon the regal constitutions of their ancient kings, next upon the twelve tables of the decemviri, then upon the laws or statutes enacted by the senate or people, the edicts of the prætor, and the responsa prudentum, or opinions of learned lawyers, and **81]lastly upon the imperial decrees, or constitutions of successive emperors) had grown to so great a bulk, or, as Livy expresses it, (u) “tam immensus aliarum super alias acervatarum legum cumulus,” that they were computed to be many camels’ load by an author who preceded Justinian. (v) This was in part remedied by the collections of three private lawyers, Gregorius, Hermogenes, and Papirius; and then by the emperor Theodosius the younger, by whose orders a code was compiled ad 438, being a methodical collection of all the imperial constitutions then in force: which Theodosian code was the only book of civil law received as authentic in Edition: current; Page: [81] the western part of Europe till many centuries after; and to this it is probable that the Franks and Goths might frequently pay some regard, in framing legal constitutions for their newly erected kingdoms: for Justinian commanded only in the eastern remains of the empire; and it was under his auspices that the present body of civil law was compiled and finished by Tribonian and other lawyers, about the year 533.

In the same year competitive examinations were introduced for employment in the civil service. However, when the proposal was rejected by the northern England devolution referendums, 2004 in the North East, further referendums were cancelled. [89] The regional assemblies outside London were abolished in 2010, and their functions transferred to respective Regional Development Agencies and a new system of local authority leaders' boards. [111] Below the regional level, all of England is divided into 48 ceremonial counties. [112] These are used primarily as a geographical frame of reference and have developed gradually since the Middle Ages, with some established as recently as 1974. [113] Each has a Lord Lieutenant and High Sheriff; these posts are used to represent the British monarch locally. [112] Outside Greater London and the Isles of Scilly, England is also divided into 83 metropolitan and non-metropolitan counties; these correspond to areas used for the purposes of local government [114] and may consist of a single district or be divided into several.

Only the barrister may appear before the high court, but he can act on behalf of a litigant only pursuant to instructions from a solicitor. This finding was in part attributable to clustering of ethnic minority service users in out of hours providers with lower overall scores; however, clustering in this manner was not itself the major driver of lower scores for individual ethnic groups. The judgment itself, and all the proceedings previous thereto, are carefully registered and preserved, under the name of records, in public repositories set apart for that particular purpose; and to them frequent recourse is had, when any critical question arises, in the determination of which former precedents may give light or assistance.

The numerous wars of the 18th century were fought with small professional armies and hardly disturbed the even tenor of life in the "fortunate isle." Luckily, the soldiers of the American Army who fought World War II were not so fainthearted. To these succeeded the bill of rights, or declaration delivered by the lords and commons to the Prince and Princess of Orange, 13th of February, 1688; and afterwards enacted in parliament, when they became king and queen; which declaration concludes in these remarkable words:—“and Edition: current; Page: [128] they do claim, demand, and insist upon, all and singular the premises, as their undoubted rights and liberties.” And the act of parliament itself (l) recognises “all and singular the rights and liberties asserted and claimed in the said declaration to be the true, ancient, and indubitable rights of the people of this kingdom.” Lastly, these liberties were again asserted at the commencement of the present century, in the act of settlement, (m) whereby the crown was limited to his present majesty’s illustrious house: and some new provisions were added, at the same fortunate era, for better securing our religion, laws, and liberties; which the statute declares to be “the birthright of the people of England,” according to the ancient doctrine of the common law. (n) **129]Thus much for the declaration of our rights and liberties.

These provisions are made, as well to secure persons in good credit from being damnified by malicious petitions, as to prevent knavish combinations between the creditors and bankrupt, in order to obtain the benefit of a commission. The municipal laws of all well-regulated states have taken care to enforce this duty: though Providence has done it more effectually than any laws, by implanting in the breast of every parent that natural στοργη, or insuperable degree of affection, which not even the deformity of person or mind, not even the wickedness, ingratitude, and rebellion of children, can totally suppress or extinguish.

After Buckingham's rebellion, Richard issued a proclamation: "the king's highness is fully determined to see due administration of justice throughout this his realm to be had and reform, punish and subdue all extortions and oppressions in the same. " This interest continued through his reign, and forms the most commonly referenced basis for the image of Good King Richard - particularly in his one parliament of 1484.
