What does legacy license mean?

I got student versions of most products that Atlassian offers. Many of them have [legacy] in the license name. Does this mean enterprise edition or what?

Legacy just means that license type is no longer offered and so cannot be renewed, although some legacy licenses had a 2-year period where you could renew them although I believe these have all now expired.  What this means is that if you renew one of these legacy licenses they will need to be renewed as one of the current licenses, which may have different user tiers.

For example see this entry from the JIRA licensing FAQ about upgrading a legacy license.
