Adminiculum Law and Legal Definition

In Latin, adminiculum means some evidence tendered to support something else. Adminiculum is an aid or support to something else, whether a right or the evidence of one. It is principally used to designate evidence adduced in aid or support of other evidence, which without it is imperfect.” In Civil law, for example, if the terms of a contract are at issue, a person may be able to prove the existence of the contract by whole or partial references to it in other documents; the latter evidence being tendered adminiculum.
