Res Ipsa Loquitur /riyz ipsə low-kwə-tər/ n. Latin for “the thing speaks for itself.” Lawyers often shorten the doctrine to “res ipsa.”
It is likely that you have never heard of res ipsa unless (a) you are an attorney; or (b) you are a Latin scholar.
One of the things I truly love to do is teach. I am an adjunct instructor at a local law enforcement academy, where I teach aspiring law enforcement officers how to be the best public servants they can be. I teach children at my church so that they can understand their faith better. I teach firearms students how to shoot so that they can effectively defend their family to the best of their ability. And I teach my clients what they need to know about business, the law, and business law, to help them become as successful as they can be.
This forum is a tool with which I can educate readers — clients and non-clients alike — about current legal issues that may affect them as they work and live in the American legal system, and particularly in the American business environment. In this way, I can speak to, for and about the law, and my clients.
So come back often! The thing speaks for itself!
