When discussing, arguing, debating or simply coming to an agreement, an unfamiliar use of "legal jargon” may be introduced into conversation. The Fylde Law glossary compiles a list of common legal terms you might come across in these situations. All terms listed are relative to specific definitions and can be adapted based on popularity. It is always important to seek legal advice if you come across a word you are unsure about. Ask for an agreement to be reworded to contain jargon you understand. Signing a legal document can be stressful enough without signing up to something you do not agree with.
Bolded terms are listed in an A-Z format and definitions are listed for further clarification.
