  • Dilip Kumar Payyapilli Raveendran United Kingdom Law may be mainly classified into two. Civil and Criminal Law. Civil law deal with relationship between individual and groups and the remedy of civil law is always compensation. The purpose of civil law is to obtain a remedy through compensation from the wrong doer and give to the aggrieved party who sustain injury. Civil is law further classified into law of tors, law of contract, family law, consumer law, property law, company law, administrative law and discrimination law. Criminal law on the other hand is a law dealing with offences against the State. It involves offences such as murder, kidnapping, conspiracy etc. Criminal law can be further classified into indictable offence and summary offence. Indictable offences are serious offences which are tried in higher courts and summery offences are less serious offence such as traffic offence like speeding, which are tried in lower court like magistrate court.

    • Cary Cooper Trinidad and Tobago The distinct differences between criminal law and civil law are in the type of action against the defendant and the type of remedy sought.
