Criminal Law

Criminal law has a distinguishing role to play in the social world, a function that provides it a distinct center from different territories of law, since criminal law is the essential legal organization by which a community reconstructs the ethical premise of its social order, its moral life, in the wake of an assault on that moral life. However, it's not obvious why the concept of embodied ethical life is in a way associated with the thought about crime and punishment. Introduction: Law is basically a collection of rules and principles created and enforced by the state whereas morals are a collection of beliefs, values and principles and behaviour standards which are enforced and created by society. Legal and moral rules can be differentiated, with the previous being created by the legislative institution of Parliament; whereas the latter have evolved with and through society and are the standards which society generally accepts and promotes. Some laws mirror the bulk of society’s moral view, for instance, that murder is wrong but the introduction of same sex marriages is seen by some people as morally wrong and society is split.

Criminal jurisprudence in India is governed by 3 acts namely Indian Penal Code(IPC), Code of Criminal Procedure (CrPC), and Indian Evidence Act (IEA). Besides this, there are special laws enacted to address specific criminal offences like Prevention of Corruption Act, POSCO. Since criminal acts are considered offences in rem i.e. against society therefore state acts as the prosecuting party in court.
