This chapter begins by discussing the need for a new European ius commune and the possibility of some global implications of its use. It then talks about the history of the European common laws starting with Roman law and its universality. Moreover, it explains the mobility of people as well as the mobility of laws. The chapter also discusses topics such as the nature of the new common laws; the early expansion of the ius unum and common law; the essential tradition of the ius commune; the ius commune as prototype; common law as common law; common law originating from England, France, Germany, and Spain; and other common laws of Europe.

Keywords:   common laws, ius commune, Roman law, Europe, England, France, Germany, Spain, ius unum
