Even today, lawyers engage in voir dire—Norman French for 'to speak the truth'—
qualifying a jury by making sure potential jurors are being truthful about their
ability to decide fairly. Other legal words, such as “arrest” and “mortgage,” have
become so familiar that their French origin is generally unrecognized. Most of the
language of the law is English, of course, but not necessarily everyday English.
Some words are unique to the law, having no meaning in ordinary discourse. To
die ...

French, German or Spanish speaking countries, a brief explanation (definition) of
its meaning is given in each of these languages. Although it is impossible to
satisfy the varying needs of lawyer, interpreter and translator, and to convey fully
the equivalents of the concepts of so many terms in a dictionary of readily
useable size, every attempt has been made to achieve this goal. The lawyers
who have ...
