Mercantile law concerns the obligations and rights that come out of business transactions. It relates to partnerships, sales of goods, contracts, insolvency and insurance.

Public law is a set of rules that govern the relationships between private individuals or private organisations and public bodies. Constitutional law on the other hand is the body of rules, doctrines, and practices that govern the operation of political communities.

Private Law is the part of the law that deals with such aspects of relationships between individuals that are of no direct concern to the state.
