Simple English definitions for legal terms


Read a random definition: Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act

A quick definition of enforcement:

Enforcement is the act of making sure that people follow the rules. This can be done by making laws, commands, or agreements that people have to follow. If someone doesn't follow the rules, they may be punished. This is called enforcement. It can be done by the police or other people who have the power to make sure that the rules are followed. Sometimes, people can also enforce rules themselves, without going to the police. This is called self-help.

A more thorough explanation:

Definition: The act of making sure that people follow a law, rule, or agreement.

For example, if a person breaks a law, the police might enforce the law by arresting them and taking them to court. Or, if two people make an agreement and one person doesn't follow through, the other person might have to go to court to enforce the agreement.

Enforcement of Foreign Judgments Act: This is a law that most states have adopted. It says that if someone has a court judgment from another country, they can use that judgment to get money or property from someone in the United States. This is called enforcing the judgment.

For example, if someone in Canada wins a court case against someone in the United States, they can use the Enforcement of Foreign Judgments Act to get the money they are owed from the person in the United States.
