This chapter investigates both the alleged cause of death of common laws, as well as its real effect on the entire circumstances of the alleged victims. It conducts a number of preliminary observations of the alleged cause of death, starting with the national appropriation of common laws in Europe; followed by the pan-European process of appropriation; and territoriality and appropriation. The chapter investigates the identity and nature of common laws abroad, common law as common law in the world, and common laws originating from France, Spain, Roman-Dutch, and Pandectist in the world. The United States of America’s experience of the national appropriation of common laws abroad is also examined. It also discusses common law in federations and confederations, and its influences within the common laws of the world.

Keywords:   common laws, world, Europe, pan-European, national appropriation, France, Spain, Roman-Dutch, Pandectist, federations
