What Is Civil Law

Civil law refers to the large body of cases brought by individuals against other individuals. When a person sues someone for defamation, or a corporation seeks to enforce an employment contract against an employee, these are both civil cases. What makes civil litigation so interesting is that there are an almost infinite variety of cases that fall under civil law’s general heading. Unlike criminal law or other specialized areas, legal professionals who work in civil litigation must be prepared for a wide assortment of cases. Fortunately, the rules that govern civil cases are uniform and relatively straightforward, even if they apply to a myriad of case types.
