Latin Legal Terms

Alis grave nil

Alis grave nil – this Latin maxim literally means “nothing could be heavy if you got wings”. It explains that there are no impossible things to be done, if the doer is well prepared to perform these. Sometimes this maxim applies to very difficult lawsuits where the initial chances for winning are small.
