Some of the larger categories of law are international law, constitutional law, criminal law, contract law, tort law, property law and equity and trusts. There are many other, more specific legal disciplines that apply to society, commerce and regualtion like family law, intellectual property law and tax law, respectively. Attorneys usually specialize in one type of law and represent legal cases before a court, sometimes defending and sometimes prosecuting in the case.
Real estate law deals with legal codes pertaining to commercial and residential property. Real estate and real property are usually accepted as synonymous and are differentiated from personal property, or chattel. Fixtures, such as houses or buildings which are permanently attached to land are considered par of real property and are governed by real estate law. Trees, minerals, and other permanent structures also fall under these regulations as well as the benefits and rights that they bestow upon the owner of the property.
