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

foreseeability rule noun

an established standard that damages may only be obtained when it can be shown that the injury could be reasonably expected at the time the contract was entered into by the breaching party (= the party that did not perform under the contract)
California courts have begun to retreat from liberal use of the foreseeability rule and have tried, instead, to determine whether in any given case the actor owed some duty to protect the injured party from harm.
