Storyboard Text

  • COMMON LAW WAS CREATED IN ENGLAND BY JUDGES APPOINTED BY THE KING. 
  • IN 1215, IT WAS ANNOUNCED BY THE POPE THAT SUCH ACTS LIKE THESE WERE NO LONGER PERMITTED. 
  • DURING THIS TIME, ORDEALS (WHICH WERE PAINFUL ACTIVITIES IN WHICH THE ACCUSED WAS TO BE DECIDED INNOCENT OR GUILTY) WERE STILL BEING USED IN COURTS.
  • THE ADVERSARIAL SYSTEM WAS INTRODUCED, AND IT GAINED COURTS MORE BUSINESS. THEY SET RULES TO MAKE SURE A TRIAL WAS FAIR, AND THE 'INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY' RULE WAS ESTABLISHED.
