Corporate Law deals with the formation, incorporation and operations of Firms, entities, companies or corporations and is related to commercial and contract law. The State laws, which vary from state to state, regulate the creation, organization and dissolution of the corporations. A corporation creates a legal or “artificial person” or entity that has standing to sue and be sued, enter into contracts, and perform other duties necessary to maintain a business, separate from its stockholders.

A body of rules and statutes that defines the conduct which are prohibited by the government because it threatens and harms public safety and welfare and that establishes punishment to be imposed for the commission of such acts. Indian legal system considers a person "innocent until proven guilty" and therefore the arrest of a person will be a violation of citizen’s fundamental right of Article 21 of Constitution "No person shall be deprived of his life or personal liberty except according to the procedure established by law."

In a free society, the personal liberty of a person is of utmost importance and even the sovereign is also not allowed to take it away without any reasonable reason and strictly according to the procedure established by law.
