Ouch Grouch! Law student shows how this latin phrase ends all hope
This aspiring abogado just heard the phrase nobody wanted to hear. The latin phrase “Sic utere tuo ut alienum non laedas” is dropped to him by a girl he is trying to show affection to.

Stephen Saavedra just had the most “legal” of heartbreaks when he asked for a hug. The said latin phrase roughly translates to “So use your own as not to injure another’s property.”
The latin phrase is commonly used in Property Law or in Customary International Law. It is commonly know as the “Sic Utere Principle” to most abogados and abogadas.
In whatever language, aray ko beh pa rin!
