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

fictigation noun

a lawsuit that never took place, but which is often used as an example of frivolous litigation. One of the most famous examples of fictigation is the well-known but untrue case of the woman who sued a manufacturer of microwave ovens after having accidentally cooked her dog while trying to dry it out after a walk in the rain.
Are you sure that actually happened? It sounds like classic fictigation to me!
