Crushendo defines this key bar prep and civil procedure term.

What does intervene mean?

intervene – When nonparties add themselves to a lawsuit by filing a timely motion. Nonparties may be permitted to intervene if they have a common question of law or fact or a statute conveys a conditional right to intervene. Nonparties have a right to intervene if a statute says so or if they have a related interest that risks practical impairment and the current parties are inadequate to protect that interest.
