Feast for Thought

Not pontificating. Only trying to bat on the side of the environment. And ethics. And simple living. And slowing down. (And trying to learn and practise before preaching or teaching...)

Legal use of '-in-law'?

A lawyer's nameplate in a posh locality of Chennai reads
Mr...
SENIOR LECTURER-IN-LAW
Govt Law College

I wonder if he has law students or students-in-law in his class...

What is the origin of '-in-law'? One Google result says 'When you form a JV with your spouse, her (his) mother is your mother - by law!'
