Burden of proof = one side has the responsibility to prove that they’re correct. In criminal law, that’s the prosecutor, and in civil law it’s the plaintiff. (The defendant never has to prove their innocence.)

Standard of proof = literally, the standard. It’s how convinced the jury/judge has to be to decide on a guilty verdict. In criminal law it’s ‘beyond reasonable doubt.’ In civil law it’s ‘on the balance of probabilities.’ Hope that helps (:
