Civil Law and Criminal Law : Evolution, Instrumentalisation, Negative Side Effects

The recourse to criminal law instead of civil law is often presented as
one of the manifestations of the process of criminalization. It is true
that criminal law offers more advantages than civil law, which explains
why litigants prefer the former. Lawmakers have acknowledged this
situation and have tried to limit access to criminal justice and to reduce
its advantages. Yet, these restrictions can only be limited, given the fact
that access to criminal justice, which is a fundamental right, cannot
be prohibited. It follows that access to criminal justice will diminish
in favour of civil justice only if the latter is reformed so as to present
similar advantages.
