Latin Legal Terms


Celeriter – it means rapidly, quickly. The origin of this term is the word “celer”, which means fast, quick. In practice, during litigation procedures, sometimes establishing burdens/pledges or seizing of assets, owned by the debtor, should be performed fast and in short deadlines possible, in order to secure the interests of the creditor; as well to prevent the debtor from transferring their assets away with the intention to save these from the creditor’s claim. This is why in some legal systems advanced seizing of assets is available to the plaintiff, prior submitting the main claim.
