The classic exposition of English Common Law at the time of the founding of the American Republic was Commentaries on the Laws of England, by William Blackstone. This work was used as a standard reference and law book by lawyers, judges, and the founding fathers, who incorporated the applicable provisions of it into the U.S. Constitution, especially for the definitions of its terms. However, Blackstone's Commentaries were written for a monarchical system of government, and needed to be adapted to the needs of the new republic. This was first done by St. George Tucker, who taught law and who had Blackstone's Commentaries republished together with his own lecture notes in 1803 in a five-volume set familiarly known as Tucker's Blackstone.

Jefferson's Freeholders explores the processes by which Virginia was transformed from a British colony into a Southern slave state. Focusing on ideas of ownership, the book emphasizes the persistent influence of English common law on the state's political culture. It uniquely details how the traditional principles of land tenure were subverted by the economic and political changes of the nineteenth century and how they fostered law reforms that encouraged the idea that slavery should replace land ownership as the distinguishing basis for political power.

With William Kent, Joseph Story shares the distinction of having had the greatest influence on American law during the nineteenth century. Marvin considers Story's Conflict of Laws to be the first systematic work on the subject. Story collected material from all available sources, and systematized it in a manner useful to all practitioners. "No work on international jurisprudence merited, nor received, greater praise from the jurists of Europe. It impressed English lawyers with the highest respect for the extensive learning of Mr. Justice Story." Marvin, Legal Bibliography (1847) 670-671.
