Brevia Judicialia Law and Legal Definition

Brevia judicialia is the Latin term for judicial writs. It means writs that are issued pending a suit or afterwards in execution of a judgment. Most brevia judicialia are issued on the basis of the pleadings and responses of the parties. Hence they vary in nature. However, there are some that are fixed in their forms and which are beyond the power of the courts to alter, unless authorized by the legislature.
