The amicus curiae is a legal term that finds its origins in Latin. Literally translated from Latin, it means friend of the court and refers to someone who has no relevance to any particular side in a case. Instead, they volunteer information regarding a point of law or something else relevant to the case that they feel may help the court in deciding a matter related to it.

Instead, they volunteer information regarding a point of law or something else relevant to the case that they feel may help the court in deciding a matter related to it. This information comes in different forms as well. One way is a legal opinion that is available as something known as a brief. It may also be a testimony that neither party solicited.
