Memo: The legal memo may conclude with recommendations on how to proceed, and how best to help a client with a legal issue. Generally, the legal memo is just a part of the legal process.

Memo is generally used in a situation where advocate appears on the behalf of respondent without submiting the vakalatnama, mentioning that he shall submit vakalatnama on the next fixed date.
