Legal English: Writ of Certiorari

Legal English: Writ of Certiorari

Here's a great new-ish (almost a year old) resource for Legal English from @WashULaw Blog. Once a week, Chelsea Wilson offers learners a legal term and definition, including pronunciation, word origin, and examples. I love the thorough explanations and sentence-level examples provided for each entry so that students can really understand the term.

However, one thing I'll never understand: How DO you pronounce "certiorari"?!

writ of certiorari

Pronunciation: RIHT uhv sir-chee-oh-RAH-ree
Origin: English
