Re: Construction Law Book

I've always wondered: why do lawyers use "Esq." rather than LL.D.? And isn't "esquire" incorrect when referring to a female?

(Yeah, pushin' buttons as usual...)

I am currently putting together a glossary of legal terms to include in the book.  I'm curious to know what legal terms people typically come across and would find helpful in a glossary.  Things like "subrogation", "indemnification", "ratification".
Feel free to e-mail me on or off list.
