Audi Alteram Partem

[Latin, hear the other side.] It embodies the concept in CRIMINAL LAW that no person should be condemned unheard; it is akin to DUE PROCESS. The notion that an individual, whose life, liberty, or property are in legal jeopardy, has the right to confront the evidence against him or her in a fair hearing is one of the fundamental principles of CONSTITUTIONAL LAW in the United States and England.
