Criminal law (also known as penal law)

 is the body of statutory and common law that deals with crime and the legal punishment of criminal offenses. It is law prohibiting conduct that disrupts social order or challenge's the authority of the state, and consequently deals with matters of significant public concern. In contrast with civil law, actions are pursued by the state rather than private citizens. Criminal law has been seen as a system of regulating the behavior of individuals and groups in relation to societal norms whereas civil law is aimed primarily at the relationship between private individuals and their rights and obligations under the law.

Criminal law is divided into two fields:
  • Criminal procedure regulates the process for addressing violations of criminal law
  • Substantive criminal law details the definition of, and punishments for, various crimes.

Origins of criminal law

The earliest example of criminal law is Hammurabi's Code. Many European jurisdictions are still influenced by Roman codes such as the Twelve Tables.
