What is POFP?

Why do lawyers refer to long documents as briefs and
18-year olds as infants? Why do they use so much Latin when so few of their
clients are Ancient Romans? Is it a conspiracy?


Party of the First Part has the answers! Check out the Website for the
Legalese Hall of Shame; a glossary of legal words linked to Adam Freedman's
columns; tips on writing legal documents in plain English; and more!

Vote for the funniest law blogs

This just in: the folks over at Legal Antics are conducting a poll for the world's funniest law blogs (not much of a competition one might think - sort of like the tallest building in Wichita - but you'd be surprised). Entries are accepted through Wednesday, June 19th. So hurry up and vote - I'll be stuffing the ballot box all night.

And if POFP doesn't win, we will demand a recall: a term I explore in this column.
