Burden of Proof (noun): This means that one party has the obligation of proving their case in court. The burden of proof in civil litigation “rests” with the claimant. This means that the claimant must prove their case on the balance of probabilities. This means that they must show the court that their version of the facts is more likely than the defendant’s version. The burden of proof in criminal law is defined differently and rests with the prosecution to prove their case so that the jury or judge is sure of the defendant’s guilt. Associated Words: Balance of Probabilities (noun), Claimant (noun), Defendant (noun), Obligation (noun).
