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

admission by party-opponent

something a party to a hearing says out-of-court that is against his or her interest and which can be used as evidence in court. NB Admissions by party-opponents are not hearsay (=the report of another person's words by a witness which is often not allowed as evidence).
The gas company argued that the appraisal could not be an admission by party opponent because the appraiser was not an agent of the gas company.
