Definition of Legal Terms:
The Need for Legal Definitions:
Many words have legal definitions that differ from their understanding in common language. Further, some legal terms are not found in common language. (An example is the word "habendum".) It's important, when reading legal opinions, to have access to legal definitions. There are a number of resources on the internet that provide law dictionaries. I list hyperlinks to several of these websites, below.
