Private law – this legal term gives the name of the type of Law which regulates the relationships between private individuals, and not these between people on one hand and the government on another. Family Law, Law of Contracts and Inheritance Law are examples of private law because the focus of those kinds of laws is the relationships between physical individuals, without the direct affect or participation of the government. These are different than the branches of the Public Law – i.e. the Administrative Law, the Parliamentary Law, etc. As it regulates legal relations among citizens, sometimes the private law is called “Civil Law”.
