Duhaime's Law Dictionary

Aliunde Definition:

Latin: otherwise.

From Trayner's 1861 book on Latin maxims as applied by the courts of Scotland along with two examples:

"Aliunde: otherwise.

"Proof of the resting owing of a debt falling under triennial prescription, can only be made by writ or oath of the party, an ordinary debt not falling under that prescription can be proved aliunde.

'The husband is not liable for any debt contracted by his wife after inhibition, except for such furnishings suitable to her quality, as he cannot prove he provided her in aliunde."

In October 2012, Justice Jere Willis of the Court of Appeals of Virginia used the term in Benguche v Commonwealth of Virginia, as follows:

"(A) confession must be corroborated in a material and substantial manner by evidence aliunde of the corpus delicti."
