Dictionary of Lawby P. H. Collin
Synopses & Reviews
The "Dictionary of Law" provides the user with a comprehensive dictionary of everyday legal terms in English. It comprises a basic vocabulary of 7,000 words and expressions used in British, American, international law--serving not just as a dictionary of law but as a dictionary, as well, of comparative law. Definitions are presented in simple English; they also include short grammatical notes, and examples are given of the words used in context.
Book News Annotation:
From "A" (as in category A prisoners, schedule A tax, Table A of the 1985 British Companies Act, and A-shares) to "zoning," this dictionary covers with examples the formal Latin to prison slang terms used in American and British law. Differences between US and UK usage are generally explained. This edition adds new material, particularly in regard to legislative processes; and deletes items only peripherally connected to legal matters, as well as the tabular supplement on legal systems and documents referred to in the preface to the first edition.
