Latin Legal Terms


Adiuvo – this legal term means: to help, aid, to assist (somebody). For example, almost every country has own Bureau for legal aid, which aims to help citizens who are not able to afford to pay lawyer’s fees, and to assist them to defend their own legal interests in court. These citizens who ask the court for legal aid, usually have to sign declarations to the court about their impossibility of payment, or have to prove it (where applicable). It should be noted that instead when working for the Bureau for legal aid, when being legal practitioners, bona-fide lawyers and attorneys-at-law do not practice their job for free. Legal advice and legal protection of people’s interests is paid as any other type of job – including the legal consultations and legal representation. The efforts which lawyers put in proper performance of their legal activities should be respected and valued by the people who seek their help. The same situation occurs when you visit a doctor – you pay for consultation and for eventual medical treatment.
