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

special endorsement noun

an endorsement (=signature on a cheque, bill of exchange or other negotiable instrument to make it payable to another person or cashable by any person) authorizing payment to someone other than the person to whom the cheque etc was first given. A check is signed with a special endorsement when you want to give your check to another person.
A blank endorsement is changed into a special endorsement if certain words are written above the endorsee's signature, such as "pay to the order of Y."
