Admission Legal Meaning and Definition

Here is a simplified definition of the legal term Admission.

Admission (noun)

An admission is a voluntary acknowledgment or confession made by a person involved in a legal proceeding (known as an adverse party) that some fact or statement is true, which is against their own interest in the case. This statement can be used as evidence in the court. It can support the other party's position or weaken the confessor’s own position in the court case. Admissions are often made to avoid the cost and time of proving simple and uncontested facts.
