Civil litigation is the process by which civil disputes are settled in a court of law. Civil law is enacted by legislators and enforced by judges. Civil law is most often enshrined in statutes, but is also created through judicial rulings. Although lawyers may often imply specialized areas of law (e.g. employment law) are distinct, civil litigation concerns all disputes submitted to the court by a plaintiff, which allege wrong doing by a defendant, but not the commission of a crime. Civil Litigation typically refers to suits involving such areas as: personal injury, contract disputes, landlord/tenant, medical malpractice, real estate, and employment.
