As student intending to become an attorney or paralegal, this book is a cornerstone that will be used and referred to for many years. A great hint for a Christmas present if you are a student. If you want one to throw in a backpack, get the paperback - it's lighter - but if you appreciate the feel and heft of a truly fine book, this one is for you.

I must say that the dictionary was indeed easy to use and extremely helpful in writing up my cases. I find that the dictionary is the one book that every Lincoln Douglass debater must have in their library. The book is also useful when looking at the Supreme Law of the Land for it has a copy of the Constitution that was also helpful. All in all I say that the format and structure of the dictionary was by far one of the best that I have seen and I am greatful that I bought it.
