The World Law Dictionary Project

English may be the common language of the world, but the Common Law is not the common law of the world

That’s why, in a unique project, TransLegal has teamed up with leading law schools from around the world to create an online multilingual law dictionary linking the world’s legal languages to a single English law dictionary.

e.g. principle, consideration, jurisdiction

compulsory joinder

a situation where several lawsuits or several parties in one lawsuit must be brought together by law. In the US, this will be done if either 1. the other parties to the lawsuit would not otherwise receive complete relief; or 2. the party in question claims some interest in the subject of the action.
The validity of the final decision is not subject to the compulsory joinder of the other parties.
