This is true in the US (except, possibly, in Louisiana) where British

for sure. I assume that the UK has similar common law since ours come
from there.

UK law is not a single homogenous entity. There is English common law which
is what you are referring to as British common law, Scotland has its own
seperate legal system that is based on Roman law.

There is no UK common law just English common law.
