Frequently Asked Questions and Answers from Termly’s Legal Experts

Is legalese bad?

Yes, legalese is bad. Legalese makes statements difficult to understand by using legal jargon, Latin, or overly complicated language.

Using legalese could make your contracts and policies void in a legal dispute, as it obscures the meaning of a given document.
