Criminal law involves a system of legal rules designed to keep the public safe and deter wrongful conduct. It covers everything; from small misdemeanours, to big heinous crimes, fraud and white-collar crime. Those who violate the law face incarceration, fines, and other penalties. It can also involve international relations and multiple jurisdictional rules, particularly concerning issues such as extradition, money-laundering, cross-border crimes and terrorism.
