  • Rk Sharma India Criminal law is made up of offences against the state. These offences represent violations of established legal rules about expected patterns of conduct in society. These violations are prosecuted in the courts and are subject to sanction when a person is convicted. Criminal law involves offences such as murder, kidnapping, conspiracy, armed robbery and tax evasion. Civil law is the area of law regulating relationships between individuals and groups and providing for compensation where an individual's rights are infringed by others. The purpose of the civil law is to obtain a remedy for a party who claims to have had their rights infringed and who has subsequently suffered loss or injury in some way

  • Charmaine Webber Australia Criminal law is used to maintain social order. It is the law enforced by police. Crimes are serious breaches of the criminal law such as murder and theft. You cannot sue or be sued under criminal law but you can be prosecuted (or charged) – usually by the police. Anyone who has committed a crime may be charged by the police and can be punished by receiving a fine, community service order or sent to jail. Civil law deals with the rights and duties of persons towards each other.
