Note 1. 

The Justice System And The Constitution

Care Proceedings are initiated under the doctrine of Civil Law.

The United Kingdom has three separate legal systems; one each for England and Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. This reflects its historical origins and the fact that both Scotland and Ireland, and later Northern Ireland, retained their own legal systems and traditions under the Acts of Union 1707 and 1800.

Judicial Accountability

Stare decisis is a legal principle by which judges are obliged to respect the precedents established by prior decisions.

“Public law is not at base about rights, even though abuses of power may and often do invade private rights; it is about wrongs – that is to say, misuses of public power.”

Note 2.
