Legal Maxims

An established principle or proposition of law is also known as legal maxim. In the Medieval era Latin language was used in courts and laws and hence there are so many Latin Maxims (Legal Maxims) used in European countries. In Pakistan and India these Latin Maxims are also very popular due to influence of British laws and Colonial Era.
