Latin Legal Terms


Agenda – this term details the list (order) of things or actions that have to be done. It participates in the legal maxim “Cum confitente sponte mitus est Agendum”, which is used in the area of Criminal Trials, where states that the person who testifies voluntary and confesses, should be given smaller punishment. The goal of this method, applicable in many jurisdictions, is to reduce the criminal trial in cases where the accused confesses the guilt.
