The standard of proof in the criminal law is...?
'beyond reasonable doubt' - but you really should do your own homework!

Note - the doubt have to be reasonable - it is not beyond all doubt
The burden of proof lies with the prosecution (they have to convince the court that the accuse is 100% guilty of the offence) and the standard of proof is met beyond reasonable doubt.
The standard of proof surrounded by criminal law is beyond all acceptable doubt. Therefore you must be certain that the person who stands beforehand the court is guilty of the alleged offence. If there is any doubt after you must find him not guilty. Source(s): Law Graduate
