1. Agent and Trustee An agent and a trustee occupy similar position. Both the agent and the trustee deal with the property for and on behalf of another person. Whereas an agent deals with the principal’s property, a trustee does so, on behalf of the beneficiary. As a result, both of them can affect the legal position of the person on whose behalf they are acting. An agent can sell and transfer the principal’s property to a third party. A trustee can also transfer the trust property to a third party. Just as a principal can trace, in agency, his property in the hand of a thirdh, party, a beneficiary can also trace his trust property in the hands of a third party in trust relationships. A trustee is a fiduciary and an agent is also a fiduciary. They both occupy a fiduciary position. Therefore, an agent must not make secret profits just as a trustee. An agent and a trustee must not act in a way that will conflict with their duties. The following are however the major areas of distinction...

1. This is the kind of law that the police enforce. Murder, assault, robbery and rape are all included within the boundaries of criminal law. A good way in which to summarise which offences come under criminal law is ‘an offence which is seen as being against everybody, even though it is not’.

Because the view is taken that everybody is threatened by the crime, criminal law is dealt with by the public services and not by private layers or investigators. A purpose of criminal law is to prevent undesirable behavior and punish offenders in accordance with the deed. Experts identify the next key types: 1. Crimes against the human cover cases of causing physical or moral harm to another person. These involve assault, forcible retention, kidnapping, murder, and rape. 2.
