Criminal justice is the delivery of justice to those who have committed crimes.  The criminal justice system is a series of government agencies and institutions whose goal is to identify and catch the law-breakers and inflict a form of punishment on them.  Other goals include the rehabilitation of offenders, preventing other crimes, and moral support for victims.  Law is a system of rules that are created and enforced through social or governmental institutions to regulate behavior. 

Law provides a source of scholarly inquiry into legal history, philosophy, economic analysis and sociology.  Law also raises important and complex issues concerning equality, fairness, and justice.
