The strength of the common law is that it evolves. The courts, especially appellate courts, hear submissions from a wide range of parties that reflect and are informed by the broader public debate over the role of law in society. The courts respond to and add to the debate incrementally, decision by decision. In this way, courts develop the law in a way that is consistent with changing societal values and priorities.
