MGMT 394 – Information Security Management Part 1: Review Questions 1 What is the difference between criminal law and civil law? According to William Geldart (1984), the difference between civil law and criminal law turns on the difference between two different objects which law seeks to pursue - redress or punishment. The object of civil law is the redress of wrongs by compelling compensation or restitution: the wrongdoer is not punished; he only suffers so much harm as is necessary to make good the wrong he has done. The person who has suffered gets a definite benefit from the law, or at least he avoids a loss. On the other hand, in the case of crimes, the main object of the law is to punish the wrongdoer; to give him and others a strong inducement not to commit same or similar crimes, to reform him if possible and perhaps to satisfy the public sense that wrongdoing ought to meet with retribution. The burden of proof for criminal cases and civil cases is also different. For criminal cases, the guilt must be proved ‘beyond reasonable doubt’. For civil cases, the case only has to be proved ‘on the balance of probabilities’, ie that it is more probable than not. I have come up with a chart comparing between criminal and civil law Criminal law Civil Law Definition the body of law that deals with crime and the legal punishment of criminal offenses. the disputes between individuals, organizations, or between the two, in which compensation is awarded to the victim. Purpose To maintain the stability of the state and society by punishing offenders and deterring them and others from offending.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
