5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent - even my boss think's it's great! 5 Oct 2003
By A Customer
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I recently started work as a Legal Secretary for a firm of solicitors and wanted a book which gives the correct spellings and meanings of legal terms - this does the job perfectly. I refer to it a lot and my boss, a Partner in the firm, is so impressed with it that even he refers to it from time to time! It is well deserving of five stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Extremely Useful 5 Nov 2009
Format:Paperback
Bought this for my studies being a first year undergraduate Law student.
Extremely useful when lecturers sometimes forget to elaborate on word meanings and latin phrases.
It's got a Writing and Citation guide which is a added bonus.
Worth well getting to clarify meanings and terms.

As others have said, this is a great book for explaining legal concepts in straightforward language.

It is available in the Oxford Reference Online database, which you may already have access to. Both my council library online account and my university online account give me access to the book; it's on Oxford Reference Online as "Dictionary of Law".

You may like it so much having used it online that you buy a paper copy!

By aweSam
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I only had a handy-down 1999 version of the ODL and needed a more up to date version once i started to cite it in essays, and this does the trick!
Seller was spot on with the second hand description; definitely recommend!
