© Pribanic & Pribanic

Oath legal definition: In the legal world, when someone takes an oath, they are swearing under penalty of perjury that they will “tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth” in depositions and other court statements. One of the functions of an oath is ensuring that someone who knowingly lies can be criminally charged.
