Conjecture Law and Legal Definition

Conjecture refers to a guess work. In the legal context, conjecture is a judgment based upon incomplete evidence. “A conjecture is defined as an explanation that, although consistent with the facts in evidence, is not deducible from them as a reasonable inference.” Banner Lumber Co. v.
