The article concentrates chiefly on the research of Latin legal terminology presented in the monuments of Georgian Law during XI-XXI centuries.It is significant,that this kind of systematic study around the Latin legal terms has been never held before.The author shows many-centuries’-long history of endeavoring establishment of the existence of Latin legal terms in Georgian legal sources, the ways of their reception in different epochs, the regularities of forming these terms in Georgian language, their initial meanings and many other noteworthy details, which is important not only from the philological, but also the legal points of view. Despite the fact, that historically Georgia had never been under the jurisdiction of Roman Empire and as this is seen from the concrete examples , Latin legal terms never entered in Georgian law directly from Roman Law or Latin language, already from the XI century they made a significant imprint on the formation of Georgian legal terminology and on the whole, greatly conduced to bringing Georgian law closer to the Western legal culture.
