Criminal Law and Civil Law

Criminal law

Criminal law covers the most serious crimes, such as murder, robbery and assault. These laws are enforced by the police and the courts, and anyone who breaks them can be prosecuted in court. If they are found guilty, they can then be fined, sent to prison, or given community sentences.

In criminal law each person is innocent until proven guilty. For someone to be found guilty of breaking the law, the evidence must show that their guilt is ‘beyond reasonable doubt’.

Civil law

Civil law mostly involves disputes between people, companies or other organisations. In civil law, cases must be proved by what the law calls ‘the balance of probabilities’.

Decisions made in court

In both criminal and civil cases, the prosecution and defence try to prove to the court that they are right and the other side is wrong.

  • In criminal cases a jury decides whether they are guilty, and the judge issues their sentence.

  • In civil and family cases, the judge decides who is right based on the evidence presented.
