How about "duces tecum"...sounds like "take 'em twice", only backwards...or legal "peace".

I also love the term "pro se". If you represent yourself, you are usually anything but a pro. In fact, you're usually a fool. But I suppose you might "se" you think are a "pro".


They say that anyone who represents themselves has a fool for a client.

Also, "trover" is what I'm naming my next dog.

I'm fond of quash. I have put it to use during intramural sports and games of Scrabble.

Not a legal, per se, but a quite from the Farnsworth, Young, Sanger, Cohen, and Brooks Contracts Casebook:

"Are oranges defective apples?"

Also, I'm a fan of "Per autre vie." Somehow it makes me think of country music.

I like Res Judicata. I hate what it represents in many cases, but it sounds powerful. Doesn't it sound like a sexual maneuver or something?

I saw the title of this thread, saw a few of the posts, and was thinking "may favorite is definitely 'high as a Georgia pine,' I hope no one has posted that yet."

Great minds...

It was used in the first week in contracts in reference to a Catholic school's policy of imposing liability on students engaging in questionable eye contact with each other.
