Jus soli is a Latin legal term used to describe what is called the Law of Soil. This refers to the concept that a person who is born on the soil of a nation is automatically conferred nationality to that nation. This can sometimes create dual nationality when combined with "Jus sanguinis." An example would be a baby born to an American couple in Spain, the baby would be an American National due to his or her parents being Americans, but also a Spanish National due to being born in Spain.
