Use the case study as an example to describe the main differences between the two branches of the law. (include a discussion of burden of proof and standard of proof)
Civil law is concerned with relations and dealing between individuals, organization and government. It aims to protect and force the rights of such parties.
Criminal law is concerned with laws that aim to protect individuals and the community. It is applied and forced by the state. It aims to control and protect the society, punish wrongdoers and hopefully deter from committing criminal acts.
