Civil Law

Civil law defines the rights and responsibilities of individuals, government entities and private or non-government organisations in their interactions with each other. A breach of a civil law right or obligation does not usually lead to criminal processes and sanctions.
For example, the laws around discrimination usually give rise to a right to compensation if they are broken, but a breach is rarely so serious as to amount to an offence under the criminal law. Similarly, the law of wills and estates defines the rights of people who might be entitled to claim on a deceased person's estate, but does not create offences except for the rare cases of fraudulent or dishonest conduct.
