English–Urdu Legal Terms – B

Note from the author: “As an erstwhile burger vakeel (lawyer), eager to join the lively katchery (district courts) scene, I can relate to the frustration faced by other in the clan, trying to make sense of the Farsi-Urdu legal terms. Poring over the lughats (urdu dictionaries) lead to more frustration. So, wanting to share whatever I have learnt over the years, I present my very own compilation of commonly used legal terms.” – via natalyakamal.wordpress.com
