  • What does "Anor" mean?

    In the title to many legal documents, I see the word "Anor" or "Anor.", as in "Smith & Anor -v- Jones & Anor." What does "anor" mean, and what is its derivation? This *might* apply only to legal documents from the UK
    and Australia, I'm not sure. Thank you.

    In the UK legal system, "Anor." is an abbreviation meaning "another." It can be thought of asthe singular form of the abbreviation "Ors.," which means "others." It is not well documented.

      It also applies in Australia. Thank you for this post, I have been through several legal dictionaries looking for what this means without success.

        It also applies in Malaysia. Most of the Law used in Malaysian are English based.

              And also in Ireland. All of these countries are common law legal systems based on the original English common law system.

                  I never heard of it in the US.
                  If it is used it must be not used widely.

                      I really appreciate your comments. I have had a number of cases with Anor in the name and I have been thinking that Anor must have been a very BIG business that I had never heard of!! Anor was associated with mining, an abbatoir, a freight company etc etc etc. I googled Anor thinking it would come up as Anor Pty Ltd .... and found your comments. Thanks!

                        It is used mostly in all commonwealth countries where the law is based on the English model, In Mauritius also legally "Anors" and "ors" is commonly quoted in courts matters !!!

                          Yeah this is absolutely right, if it isn't used in the US then it mustn't be correct.

                          Classic American ignorance.

                            Poster above is rude and ignorant. The quoted poster was merely stating that Anor might not be used in the US- not that it means it must be incorrect. As an American studying law in Australia I find many legal terms used by most common law country except the US. American law is common law as opposed to civil law, but the system has developed differently than it has in other common law countries.

                              In the US you will see et al, meaning and others. Seems to be the same usage as Anor.
