Terms and Phrases New Law Students Must Know

TermsNew law students encounter an explosion of new words and terms from cases, the law school environment, and the practice of legal research. I remember my first few weeks of school wondering if I would ever read a case without encountering a word to lookup in my pocket-sized law dictionary.

Would you like to get a head start on the first semester? Harvard Law School identified a few terms as ones you should know in your first few weeks of law school here: HLS Library: One-L Dictionary. Learn them before school and you will have a head start. Plus, you will be able to make more sense of what you hear during your first week.

HLS Library: One-L Dictionary is a short list. This is good because you can learn it quickly before school. Also, any attempt to create a comprehensive list of words that law students should know would become very long—and that is the purpose of dictionaries.
