Why is Latin still used in our legal system ?

Understanding the law and trying to explain it is difficult enough without the LATIN terminology still being used. WHY?

In general, why would you add/include any other language to the laws that apply when it is difficult enough to explain them already?

HERE IS ONE EXAMPLE OF DEFINITIONS TO SHOW HOW CRAZY THE LANGUAGE IS-

grievance (ˈɡriːvəns)
n
1. a real or imaginary wrong causing resentment and regarded as grounds for complaint
2. a feeling of resentment or injustice at having been unfairly treated
3. affliction or hardship

HOW CAN IT BE REAL AND IMAGINARY ?
