Et Seq. Legal Meaning and Definition

Here is a simplified definition of the legal term Et Seq..

Et Seq. (adverb)

Et Seq. is an abbreviation derived from the Latin phrase 'et sequentes', which translates to 'and the following'. Often employed in legal contexts, it implies that every item, page, or section in a list or series (usually numbered) following the one specified is included in the reference. For instance, if a lawyer cites "Vehicle Code Section 1204, et seq.", they're not just referring to Section 1204 alone, but also all the sections that come after it in sequence.
