An adversarial legal system, commonly used in common law jurisdictions like England and Wales, is based on a contest between opposing parties who present their cases to an impartial judge or jury. The judge ensures fair play and adherence to legal procedures. In contrast, an inquisitorial system, often used in civil law jurisdictions, involves the court taking a more active role in investigating the facts and determining the outcome of the case. The judge or judicial panel leads the inquiry and gathers evidence. 

Key Point: Understanding the differences between adversarial and inquisitorial systems is essential for comprehending how legal processes and judicial roles vary across different jurisdictions.
