Questia, your online research library and paper writing resource, contains thousands of scholarly Law articles and books.

Law is a critical responsibility from government control enforcing standards for the safety and support of the community in which it governs. It is the balance of control and morality dating as early as the Mesopotamian era of King Hammurabi in 1760 B.C.E, and continuously develops as it pertains to current events and the evolution of its society. The structure of law is separated into two broad divisions: civil and criminal law.

  • Civil Law – individual or organizational dispute between two parties in which compensation is warranted to the deserving party
  • Criminal Law – deals with crime and legal offense with the possibility of legal punishment by government legislation
