Sir Edward Coke [1552-1643] was considered to be the greatest legal practitioner of his day. He is known for writing Law Reports, also referred to as Coke's Reports. They were an archive of law reports of cases he contributed in, watched, or was familiar with. They started with the notes he made as a law student in 1572. He started fully reporting cases in October 1579. Coke never officially published his entire Reports during his lifetime. Select cases were published in 1600. Coke's challenge to the ecclesiastical courts is seen as the origin to the right to silence.

Page 26 - although proclamation be not made in the county, every one is bound to take notice of that which is done in parliament ; for as soon as the parliament hath concluded anything, the law intends that every person hath notice thereof, for the parliament represents the body of the whole realm, and therefore it is not requisite that any proclamation be made, seeing the statute took effect before.
