Slide notes:There are many kinds of public law. The two types that have the most effect on individuals are criminal law and administrative law. The most serious kinds of crimes, such as murder and kidnapping, are called felonies. Less serious crimes, such as disturbing the peace and minor traffic violations, are known as misdemeanors. Both of these fall under criminal law. Administrative law consists of the many rules, regulations, and policies that are written by government agencies. 17
