*Legal Lexicon

Welcome to what many consider the Net's Best Law Dictionary with Thousands of Definitions & Explanations of Legal Terms, Phrases & Concepts.
Some Important Info About the Lexicon
1. "*" Indicates terms with more extensive explanations, case cites, etc., and 2 to 25KB in size.
2. A number of the Lexicon's files contain material from Bouvier's Legal Dictionary, a work published in the 1850's. Such files usually have a "--b--" after the definition... something like this:

--b--
Be aware that some of Bouvier's grammar & spelling is even more peculiar than our own, so don't complain to us -- we didn't do it. Also, there are occasional Latin and obsolete terms that we left in though we have no idea what they mean, so don't ask.
Finally, the entire 2 volume, 7 MB electronic version of Bouvier's - sold elsewhere for $40 and up - is just one of the many no-cost products and services available exclusively to our GoldCard Program Members.
3. Most Importantly, You Should Never Rely On Any Legal Material Without Checking Its Accuracy With A Reliable Source. We strongly urge people - and lawyers too - to read our "Relying On Legal Info FAQ"(选定跳查)
This Goes Double For the Bouvier's Stuff. While it may have been accurate when written 150 years ago, and while much may still be fine, there have been some minor changes in some aspects of the law since it was last revised. For example, it's possible women can now vote, and we think we heard that slavery was eliminated a few years ago. Some of the inaccuracies are more subtle, so...
