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.
1. By the way. (From Latin: ob “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.
