Sibling-in-law is a gender-neutral term to refer to a brother-in-law or sister-in-law.

A brother-in-law (plural brothers-in-law) is the brother of one's spouse or the husband of one's sibling.

A sister-in-law (plural sisters-in-law) is the sister of one's spouse or the wife of one's sibling.

Additionally, persons who have siblings who are married, will refer to each other as "brother/sister-in-law" or "co-brother/sister-in-law" since each is the sibling-in-law of the other's spouse.
