16/11/16 Difference between Judgement and Verdict

difference between Judgement and Verdict

A verdict is the decision made by a jury. It is a finding based on an examination of questions of facts pertaining to the case.
• A judgement is a decision made by a judge or a court of law. It is a decision that includes the resolution of both questions of fact and law.
• A verdict does not conclude the trial completely. It is rather an important process that takes place prior to the final pronouncement by court.
• A judgement, in contrast, represents the conclusion of a legal action.

(* Please note that it’s verdict, and not veredict.)
