Latin Legal Terms

Magis

Magis – this Latin term literally means more, to a greater extent, rather, for preference. In practice, the word relates to the legal maxim “interpretation fienda est ut res magis valeat quam pereat”, which means a construction is to be made that the subject may have an effect, rather than none and fail.
