prawo zwyczajowe
Explanation:
to dosłownie

pozostaje jedynie sprzeczność z tłumaczeniem 'common law' jako prawo zwyczajowe, bo:
"common law
the law of a country or state based on custom, usage, and the decisions and opinions of law courts: it is now largely codified by legislative definition: distinguished from statute law"
[Webster's]

neutral  Margaret Marks: I can't read Polish, but custom is one thing and common law (judges' decisions) another. Custom is a fairly small source.
