Burden of Proof

"Beyond a reasonable doubt" is perhaps the most famous legal standard. It's the standard of proof for the prosecution—who has the burden of proving the defendant guilty—in a criminal case. But other standards of proof come into play in both criminal and civil cases, and the burden of proof can shift from one side to the other.
