<!-- The '''burden of proof''' is the responsibility of proving a point which is at issue between contending parties, as in a [[lawsuit]]. This is in contrast to a [[debate]], in which each party must support his contentions.
In certain types of a dispute the ''[[status quo]]'' is often accepted as the norm, and defenders of the norm need not prove that it is true. Challengers to the norm have the burden of proof.
See [[standard of proof]].
