Latin Legal Terms


Laedo – this Latin term means strike, hit, hurt, damage, offend, annoy, violate. The word forms the legal motto “sic utere tuo ut alienum non laedas”, used in the Real Estate Law. It provides that a person should use and manage their property so he should not harm the neighbors and their properties. I.e. the ownership right has its restrictions. The term applies also in the legal maxim “Neminem Laedit Qui Jure Suo Utitur”, which in terms of Civil Law means that a person, exercising his own legal rights, does not harm the sphere of others.
