About This Quiz

Are you a lawyer in real life … or do you just play one on TV? Are you a struggling law student, or are you just a habitual offender looking for an edge at your next felony hearing? The legal world is a labyrinth of Latin and old-school language. Do you think you really know your laws from your sanctions? Take our law terms quiz now and find out!

The justice system is less of a science and more of an art – those who know the lingo and the craft are much more likely to succeed in court than those who struggle to master fundamental legal concepts. If you have a grasp on terms like “natural law” and “common law,” perhaps you’re much more likely to win that court case – or better yet – avoid legal entanglements altogether. Do you know the difference between various categories of law in the United States?

Some terms are quite literally in another language. Unless you’re adept in Latin or experienced in law, it’s unlikely that you’ll know what “prima facie” or “mens rea” mean during a tense court hearing. But if you want to graduate from law school, you’re definitely going to need at least a few Latin terms in your vocabulary.

It’s time for you to file a motion in our online legal quiz. Maybe your due diligence will help you fake your way through law school. Or perhaps you’ll be indicted as a legal fraud of the worst kind. Take our legal terms quiz now!
