Definitions of important terms in legal department management

To think carefully is to define precisely (See also my posts of Feb. 9, 2006, March 13, 2006 (#1), and April 19, 2006 (#2) on British terms and their American counterparts.) This blog has given birth to an ample litter of posts that tackle the meaning of terms or attempt useful definitions. Here, then, are cites to Rees Morrison definitions of key terms used in law-department management discourse.
