Civil Law


Civil Law

Civil law refers to the uniform civil code in India that governs the entire community of India regardless of religious preferences and customs. It governs contracts and other community laws as a whole, and it covers that aspect of Indian law that does not fall under criminal law or family law.

Under civil laws in India, civil rights lawyers and civil lawsuit solicitors deal with cases that are directly involved with civil rights, lawsuits, breach of contracts, rental agreements and other legal documentation, injunction suits, money suits, etc. In essence, civil litigation lawyers handle cases that are not criminal, as well as those cases which don't fall under the constraints of Indian family law. In other words, cases involving individuals, entities, or organizations in non-criminal legal proceedings, in a directly civil sense, will require the services of a civil attorney.

Civil law encompasses the entire spectrum of Indian law and legal regulations that deal with non-criminal law. Also known as civilian law, these laws govern the uniform civil code of India, which is a system of laws that are applied to the entire Indian community regardless of religious views or customs. Contracts and civilian conflicts that are non-criminal are handled under these laws by civil rights lawyers and civil rights law firms. Civil cases are specially distinguished from criminal cases in that these cases deal more with offering compensation or settlements to the aggrieved party or settling disputes (rather than to issue punishments, which is the case with criminal court hearings).

Civil law (sometimes referred to as Common Law) is a comprehensive system of laws and regulations that govern practically every non-criminal situation and interaction of a community. Hence, predictably, every situation of a civil case has several parameters and guidelines that can only be maneuvered effectively by a trained civil attorney.
