It’s Not The Law: Legal Word Crafting

Unalienable or Inalienable Rights?

Consider the word “Unalienable.” This word was used by Thomas Jefferson in second  sentence of the Declaration of Independence where he described certain rights:

“We hold the truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” (Emphasis added)
