PI Stands for Personal Injury, Not Public Interest

Postby jpSartre » Mon Apr 18, 2011 2:14 pm

I'm tired of reading PI and having to dumb myself into remembering you people mean public interest. You're going to make fools of yourselves when you talk to other lawyers, and I don't want to get into a bad habit.

This should be a goddamn sticky.

I think it actually stands for preliminary injunction. Or plaintiff indigent.

Edit: I'm definitely going with Propriedade Intelectual as the definitive meaning. So much sexier than IP.

Oh, I always thought people were talking about a mathematical constant whose value is the ratio of any Euclidean plane circle's circumference to its diameter. Silly me.

But public intoxication is! And isn't that just more fun all around?

Edit: I bet that it doesn't have several acronyms used on this site on there. People on this site are trying to differentiate public and private more often then they are ever talking about personal injury. Plus, most law schools have a Public Interest program/clinic. Once they are lawyers, they'll be able to say what part of the public interest they serve and can go to using PI for hot coffee lawsuits.
