Abstract: The 12 inverse Jacobian elliptic functions are expanded in power series by using properties of the symmetric elliptic integral of the first kind. Suitable notation allows three series to include all 12 cases, three of which have been given previously. All coefficients are polynomials in the modulus $ k$ that are homogeneous variants of Legendre polynomials. The four series in each of three subsets have the same coefficients in terms of $ k$.
