The branch of law that deals with crime is known as Criminal Law. The main function of criminal law is to ensure security, peace and order in society and that disputes are settled within a predetermined framework. Criminal law’s purpose is to protect the social, moral, physical and mental health of people.
Unlike other branches of law, violation of criminal laws results in punishment rather than dispute resolution or compensation to the victims. The quantum of punishment given is based on the severity of the crime, the perpetrator’s previous record, the judge’s discretion and in many countries, on a jury’s assessment of the circumstances.
The objectives of criminal law are deterrence, retribution, management of criminal elements, protection of society from such elements, reformation and rehabilitation of the criminal etc. Each country has its own set of laws, based on history, culture and ethos.
