>> Business Law and Ethics
There are several different classifications of law. Sometimes it's difficult to understand the differences between criminal and civil law. Criminal law is concerned with acts against society as a whole, resulting in some form of punishment. In other words, a crime has been committed. Civil law is concerned with acts against a person, usually resulting in compensation or relief. For example, contract law falls under civil law.
