This dictionary of legal terms looks to the plain-English meaning of all the words lawyers, judges and anyone else involved in our legal system feel compelled to use. It provides a humorous resource into this archaic and convoluted language and is sure to make anyone you know in the legal profession laugh out loud at its accurate absurdity. In The Dictionary of Legal Bullshit, you will find the definition of such words as:

Bankrupt. The state of being that one attains when the government sticks your creditors with the bill for your extravagant expenditures.

Jail. Exclusive public housing with lousy neighbors, no view, poor facilities and one of the highest cost per square foot of any living space ever built; but with slightly less violence and fewer drug dealers than the public housing that is available to the populous at large.

Plus, find key Latin translations, like:
Res ipsa loquitor. Duh.

Res judicata. You lost, get over it.

Respondeat superior. Sue the one with the most money.
