Civil litigation is a lawsuit that can be undertaken by individuals or companies seeking to reclaim what is owed to them. Examples of Civil Litigation lawsuits include collection of debts, enforces written and oral contracts, collection of unpaid judgments. Civil litigators must master a variety of procedures and skills, such as discovery processes and advocacy techniques.

In civil litigation, the burden of proof is usually on the plaintiff. However, there are a number of situations in which the burden may shift to the defendant. For example, when the plaintiff has made a prima facie case, the burden shifts to the defendant to refute or rebut the plaintiff's evidence.
