Legal Systems

  • Canon law: Topic Page
    The law governing the affairs of a Christian Church, especially the law created or recognized by papal authority in the Roman Catholic Church.
  • Civil law: Topic Page
    The part of a country’s law that deals with the rights, etc of its citizens, rather than crimes.
  • Commercial law: Topic Page
    The principles and rules drawn chiefly from custom, determining the rights and obligations of commercial transactions.
  • Common law: Topic Page
    System of law that prevails in England and in countries colonized by England. The name is derived from the medieval theory that the law administered by the king's courts represented the common custom of the realm.
  • Criminal law: Topic Page
    The branch of law dealing with unlawful acts which are offences against the public and society generally.
  • International law: Topic Page
    Body of rules considered legally binding in the relations between national states, also known as the law of nations. It is sometimes called public international law in contrast to private international law (or conflict of laws), which regulates private legal affairs affected by more than one jurisdiction.
  • Labor law: Topic Page
    Legislation dealing with human beings in their capacity as workers or wage earners. The Industrial Revolution, by introducing the machine and factory production, greatly expanded the class of workers dependent on wages as their source of income.
  • Maritime law: Topic Page
    System of law concerning navigation and overseas commerce. Because ships sail from nation to nation over seas no nation owns, nations need to seek agreement over customs related to shipping.
  • Military law: Topic Page
    The statutes, codes, and common traditions relating to and executed by military courts for the discipline, trial, and punishment of military personnel.
