Civil law according to wikipedia, "is a legal system originating in Continental Europe and adopted in much of the world. The civil law system is intellectualized within the framework of Roman law , and with core principles codified into  a referable system, which serves as the primary source of law. The civil law system is often contrasted with the common law system, which originated in medieval England, whose intellectual framework historically came from uncodified judge-made case law , and gives precedential authority to prior court decisions".

Civil law deals with disputes and relationship problems among members of any community. It's said as seen above to  contrast with Common Law. Apart from Common Law, it also contrasts with military law and Ecclesiastical Law.
