RE: Construction Law Book

What an utterly sexist remark.  You should be ashamed of yourself.

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

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.
