Favorite legal words?
Just in time for the holidays, the ABA Journal has posted a roundup of favorite legal words from some notable lawyers and bloggers. The responses ranged from "amicus brief" to "res judicata." What's your favorite legal word (or phrase)? This time of the year, mine is anything other than "office memo."
Hat tip: ABA Journal
I offer quantum meruit. Because students mangle the pronunciation in some amusing ways: quantum mer-root, quantum merriott (I think I stayed there once, when visiting Quantum), and quantum merriment (especially around this time of year).
