[texhax] Legal Style Numbering

I know that I am doing something incredibly stupid, but I cannot figure
out what.

I am trying to get "legal" style" list numbering. I am using the
"enumitem" package. According to the directions, I inserted this in the
document:

\newlist{legal}{enumerate}{10}
\setlist[legal]{label*=\arabic*.}

Then:

\begin{enumerate}
\item Test
\begin{enumerate}
\item Two
\end{enumerate}
\end{enumerate}

This prints:

1. Test
(a) Two

I thought I could do this:

\begin{enumerate}[legal]

However, that only produces this error message:

Package enumitem Error: legal undefined. \begin{enumerate}[legal]

So my question is, what am I doing wrong?

Thanks!
