Classification of Law


There are many ways to classify law, but the most common one is to divide it into two main categories – criminal law and civil law. A simple distinction between the criminal law and the civil law is that the latter regulates the relationships between individuals and the former regulates the legal relationships between the state and individual people. Civil law includes property law, which governs transfer and ownership of property, and contract law, which is the law of personal agreements.

When a person has a grievance and he or she cannot settle it, the courts will settle the differences. This type of law is called a tort law. In tort law, the harm or injury is considered a private wrong, and the main task is to compensate the victims for the harm that was inflicted on them. The harm may be either physical or mental and includes such wrongful acts as trespassing, assault and battery, invasion of privacy, libel, and slander.

In civil actions, the injured person must file an action in order to initiate proceedings, if the offender is found guilty, then he or she pays restitution to the person that was harmed. Criminal law includes criminal offences, which range from the small to the very serious (e.g. murder, rape). The most important purpose of criminal law is to give the state the power to protect the public from harm by punishing individuals whose actions threaten the society. For criminal actions, the state initiates the legal proceedings by bringing charges against the criminal, then prosecuting him or her.

If it is determined that a criminal law was broken, the state will impose a sentence against the defendant such as imprisonment, probation, or a fine, payable to the state. Although the division between civil and criminal law is very clear, there may be some discrepancy (e.g. someone who was found “not guilty” during his criminal trial, but was found “guilty” during his civil trial). It happens because criminal trials are based on the evidence of “beyond a reasonable doubt”, while for a civil case the evidence has only to prove the “preponderance of the evidence”.

Treatment of Offenders Sentencing

The sentence passed on an offender is entirely a matter for the court. The Government ensures that the courts available range of sentences suited the circumstances of each case and that they are well informed about the purpose and nature of each sentence.

Custody. The Government believes that Custody should be a sanction of last resort used only when the gravity of the offence means that there is a positive justification for a custodial sentence. The Court of Appeal has stated that sentencers should examine each case in witch custody is necessary to ensure that the term imposed is as short as possible. Court’s duty is to protect the interests of the public and to punish the criminal. A magistrates’ court cannot impose a term of more that six months’ imprisonment for each offence tried summarily. It may impose consecutive sentences subject to twelve months’ imprisonment. The death penalty has been repealed for almost all offence. It has not been used for any of these offences: the offence of treason, piracy with violence – since 1946.

Probation. The purpose of probation is to protect society by the rehabilitation

of the offender, who continues to live in the community. Probation may last from six to three years. The cost of the probation service is shared between central and local government. The probation service maintains day centers and hostels together with programs designed to meet the needs of a broad range of offenders. Offenders aged 16 or over convicted of imprisonable offences may be given community service orders (40-240 hours’ unpaid service).

Fine.A fine is the most common sentence imposed in more than 80 per cent of cases. There is no limit to the fine, which may be imposed on indictment (the maximum limit is 2 000).

Civil Proceedings

Civil proceedings are instituted by the aggrieved person. In the High court actions are usually begun by a writ of summons served on the defendant by the plaintiff, stating the nature of the claim. A defendant can contest the claim. He informs the court. Documents setting out the question in the pleadings are delivered to the court. Civil proceedings can be abandoned or ended by compromise. Actions brought to court are usually tried without a jury, except in defamation, false imprisonment, malicious prosecution cases.

The jury decides questions of fact and damages awarded to the injured party. Majority verdicts may be accepted. An action in a magistrates’ court is begun by a complaint on which the court may serve the defendant a summons. The evidence is given at the court hearing. The court may order provision for custody, access and suThe costs of an action are usually paid by the party which lost it, except some of cases.
