Legal defination of may

Customer Question

legal defination of may

The word "may" is not a legal term, and so does not have any legal meaning aside from its plain English meaning.

The following link sets out its ordinary English meanings:

Context is always important in working out the intended meaning of a word in a legal situation, so if you explain the context, I will try to assist you further.

Otherwise, please rate my answer.
