Civil Law

Civil law disputes are generally the cases in court that are not about breaking a criminal law. For example, disputes over business contracts or debts, or disputes between neighbours. Civil law can also cover disputes between individuals, companies and sometimes local or central government.

Civil cases are started by an individual or an organisation to help settle a dispute and cases are generally settled when one party pays compensation or takes some other suitable action, such as correcting their business practice.
