Publisher Comments:

Prepared by a noted legal lexicographer and team of prominent legal historians, scholars, lawyers, and judges, who rewrote every entry — both for substantive accuracy and for stylistic clarity. Includes quotes and cites on terminological issues from authorities such as William Blackstone and Charles Alan Wright with illustrative quotations from hornbooks, treatises, and other scholarly sources. Covers international law as never before. Systematically incorporates new legal terms from "cybersquatting" to "Megan's law" to "statistical-decision theory." Parts of speech and etymology of terms are provided where appropriate. Includes dozens of subject and usage labels to quickly orient you to term's context.
  • Easy-to-use pronunciation guide provides the most reliable set of pronunciations
  • Includes specialized vocabularies from "legal realism" to "critical legal studies"
  • Covers vocabulary of specialized fields such as elder law, employment law, intellectual property, white-collar crime, and constitutional law
  • Includes better information on Roman law and early common law than earlier editions

Black's Law Dictionary is an excellent resource. I always carry the paperback version to class and the library, but keep the hardcover at home for all the definitions not listed in the paperback.
