World History Answer Check (Ms.Sue)

How did King Henry II's goal to become more powerful affect the development of law?

A: Henry's goal to become more powerful affected the development of law as it ultimately expanded the power of royal courts. Since royal courts were now found throughout England, a body of common law--law common to the whole kingdom--replaced local law codes that often varied from place to place. These principles of English common law were then adopted by the American colonies. When the colonies became a new nation, these same principles would become part of the legal system of the United States.
