This study reviews the genesis of the Western Legal Tradition, and the author seeks to answer the question ""What are the origins of the Western Legal Tradition?"";Seeking an answer to this question is complex, because the origins of Western law are embedded in the philposophical, religious and political culture of the Greaco-Roman world as well as its legal culture. the opening chapters of the book trace the origins of Western philosophy as well as the origins of Christianity and how aspects of greek philosophy were absorbed into Christianity. The book also traces the origins of feudalism and its transition to federal law; the emergence of common law; the origin of constitutionalism and the origins of parliament, especially as developed by the early Tudor monarchs.
