Obiter

What is it?

Obiter dictum (pl. obiter dicta): 

1. A statement in passing, an incidental remark.

2. A judge’s expression of opinion uttered in court or giving judgement, but unessential to the decision and therefore without binding authority.

Obiter: 

1. By the way.  (From Latinob “to, toward” + iter “journey”)

2. A satirical magazine produced quarterly by a group of highly-attractive UQ law students with a flair for inane drollery.  Obiter contains articles about uni, the law school, politics, current events, and pretty much whatever else we feel like writing.
