Legal Dictionary


“Supra” is a Latin word meaning “above” or “over,” often used to denote something superior or exists above. In legal contexts, “supra” is used to refer to a previously cited source, indicating that the current citation comes from the same source. If a legal document cites a case multiple times, “supra” may be used to avoid repetition and maintain clarity and conciseness in legal writing.
