Abstract

The word "plagiarism" comes from the Ltin word "plagiariius," meaning kidnapper, and has been defined as the "purloining of ideas or language from another source. Some law schools have strict tests: if students borrow a unique phrase of two or three words, a string of seven words or more, or a single idea, these students may be guilty of plagiarism.
