    Substantive Law Versus Procedural Law

Understanding American criminal law concepts is a necessity for a criminal justice major. Chapter 3 of the text is devoted to explaining the principles and concepts of substantive and procedural law under due process of the American criminal justice system. In order to examine global criminal activity, students must first examine the system under which they are required to abide by and uphold as criminal justice majors. What is the difference between substantive criminal law and procedural criminal law? Can you provide an example of these concepts for crimes in the United States as well as international crimes? Evaluate if global criminal activity also operates under the substantive criminal law and procedural criminal law concepts?

Your initial post should be at least 400 words in length. Support your claims with examples from the required material(s) and/or other scholarly resources, and properly cite any references.
