Latin Legal Terms


Ascisco – literally this Latin term means to receive, admit, or adopt. In the area of Family Law for example, the spouses who are not physically able to make a child, are entitled to apply for adoption of an orphan. So they will recognize the adopted child as their own and this child will have all rights as if it was born by these parents (i.e. it will inherit them, it has the rights to be fed and kept well, etc.)
