Description
While Criminal Law deals with Crimes which are harmful to society, civil law deals with civil wrongs done to individuals which infringe the right of a private person through his acts which are unauthorised by law. The subject Torts' deals with such civil wrongs, independent of contract, for which the appropriate remedy is an action for damage or injury. Torts' is the mother science of civil law. It provides both the theory and practice of civil law. It describes the civil wrongs which are punishable and also provides adequate remedies as per the severity of the damage or injury. The civil wrongs end with damages or injuries to individual(s). The study of Torts' helps the citizens not to perform wrongs as they are punishable and it also enlightens them to seek judicial redressal for the wrongs done to him by others.
