he differences between substantive law, procedural law, criminal law, civil law, common law, and statutory law. Provide examples of each law 

Jan 10th, 2015

Procedural law comprises the set of rules that govern the proceedings of the court in criminal lawsuits as well as civil and administrative proceedings.

Substantive law is a statutory law that deals with the legal relationship between people or the people and the state.

Substantive law defines the rights and duties of the people, but procedural law lays down the rules with the help of which they are enforced. 

An example of substantive law is how degrees of murder are defined.

Examples of procedural laws include the time allowed for one party to sue another and the rules governing the process of the lawsuit.

Common law is uncodified.
