Legalese

From LawGuru Wiki

Legalese is the term given to the special technical terminology of any given language (usually English) in a legal document. Legalese is prone to having very long sentences with many carefully phrased clauses. The terminology is officially used to make documents less subject to unintended reinterpretation, but many argue that it also can have the effect of making documents hard to read for non-legal people.
