    Since in a lot of instances Civil Law seeks to overturn principles of Common Law, I'd have to say the latter is better.

    Example: Common law places theft as a crime. Civil Law allows for theft in the name of the "public good" in the form of confiscatory tax policy.

    The criminal device interior the U.S. is civil regulation, not person-friendly regulation. In a feeling, that's person-friendly regulation with the aid of fact the regulation is interpreted utilising precedents, however the actually rules are set by using U.S. and state legislatures, so that's civil regulation.
