Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

The flashcards are excellent and a very useful addition to the book...It would be of immense value...to make the CD audible/playable that states and defines the words audibly.

As a text focusing exclusively on terminology, Ms. Okrent's text is outstanding...I like the variety of exercises included in the text: the students would get a great deal of practice with the terms.

Most of the students I had when I taught with this book said they used those flashcards and that's how they really learned the legal terms...The case application section was something I always assigned for each unit.
