Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The value of a good LAW DICTIONARY cannot be overstated. Most lawyers use Black's Law Dictionary for citation purposes, but this is the much better dictionary for comprehending legal terminology." -- Information Today

I was very disappointed when I opened this dictionary to look for standard words used on a daily basis in the legal field! I was only able to find about half the words that I was looking for. I should have known better, that a true legal dictionary would cost a lot more than $10! Save your money and buy: Black's Law Dictionary / Edition 9 by Bryan A. Garner. Black's Law Dictionary is a "real" law dictionary used in law school, yes, it is a lot more expensive, but you will find "all" of the terminology used in the legal field.
