Legal Glossary

The glossary is designed to give you an overview of various aspects of the English legal system. It seeks to explain legal terminology in plain and simple English.  The law is complex and ever-changing. The glossary does no more than provide an introduction and explanation of basic concepts. The material contained on this site does not constitute legal advice. There is no substitute for legal advice and users of the internet should always be very careful about relying on advice contained on bulletin boards, forums and websites.

If you require legal advice you can contact Brett Wilson LLP via the below details. If we are unable to help you ourselves (for instance you enquiry relates to an area of law we do not practice) then we will be able to point you in the appropriate direction
