Ohio Supreme Court Creates New Interactive Online Glossary of Legal Terms
Like many professions, the practice of law requires knowing a lot of legal lingo. To help lay people understand what lawyers, judges and legal opinions are say, the Ohio Supreme Court has created an interactive online glossary of 160 legal terms like res judicata, summary judgment and sua sponte. The new glossary comes with a list of words and pop-up definitions that appear when readers of Court News Ohio (CNO) hover over words. For fun, CNO has also introduced “Legal Word of the Week," which you can follow on CNO's Facebook or Twitter pages.
