      English common law, perhaps.  People said:

      "It's like "Judeo-Christian", a description of what's in common between an ancestor and a descendant."

      and

      "Features of our system like habeas corpus, trial by jury, indictment by grand juries and the presumption of innocence come from English common law. Only Louisiana has a legal system that is fundamentally different - they draw on the Code Napoleon."
