De Legibus et Consuetudinibus Angliae (The Laws and Customsof England) is the first treatise on English law. Asystematic work, it emphasizes the separation of proceduraland substantive matters and also cites cases as sources ofat least intellectual, if not formal, authority. InMaitland's words, Bracton's Legibus is "the crown and flowerof English medieval jurisprudence" and "by far the greatestof our medieval law books."
