words in many law firm names: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
My name is not a name, it is a word. My name is a legal term of art. It is the name of a legal entity. It is a legal description that can be used when writing a legal document. And that is where the confusion begins.
There is a good reason that the word “juris” was invented. A legal term of art. A legal entity. A legal description. I know this because I am trying to name my current position at a law firm.
In many law firms, one of the jobs is to provide “names.” They are not just descriptions of legal terms of art. They are legal descriptions. When people enter a law firm, they expect to be shown names, and as a result, they often write them down. Now there’s a problem. Names can be written down in many different ways. To say that the word “juris” should be in the title of the firm is ridiculous.
A lawyer’s name in a law firm is not in the title, nor is his title in a law firm. The firm name is just a generic description of the job at hand, and the title is a legal term, not a description of some imaginary “law firm.” In fact, as soon as a title or name is written down, it can immediately become a description.
I don’t think we should allow this to become the norm. And I don’t think we should allow it to become common practice either. Names should be written down only with the consent of the person who created it. The same thing holds true in writing titles of books, movies, and songs.
In many other words, if you ever decide you want to make a book, movie, or song, you should write it down. And you should write it down only with the consent of the person who created it.
But most of us don’t write down our own books, movies, or songs. We are so used to reading about them because their titles are so commonly used by the general public that we just don’t think about it. But the truth is, we should. We’re all consumers. We should also be writers.
In this trailer we’re going to take a look at some other legal names we’ve found, and what they mean.
If you dont have a legal name, then you should probably write it down and keep it. But we dont need to know why you have a legal name, and we have a whole lot of other legal names for you to use. So here’s the good news: you DON’T have a legal name.
For those of you who are unaware, there are three types of names: First, names that are commonly used from the start of a law firm, these include: Baker, Brown, and the like. The second type of names is a nickname for a lawyer, usually coined later by a client and often used by other lawyers working for the same firm. The third type of name is a legal name, such as being a lawyer, or being a member of a law firm.
