5.0 out of 5 stars 100% 15.oo to your door 27 July 2011
Verified Purchase
This, the 6th Eddition: a must have reference book. Do consider the latest one (9th), as it's got certain user features which are possibly better as it seperates certain things such as maxims out of the main body. This one's pre-Gardiner (the editor). He's ruined a lot of the definitions in the versions following this one. He defends this in all three prefaces, of all three later ones. He's got an agenda, or he just likes making his mark, but why does he need to defend this decision THREE EDDITIONS INTO HIS EDITORSHIP if it's for the better? I got my one through in perfect shape, within days, and all in it was less than 15.oo. If you want a load of definitions of technical jurisdiction specific administrative forms from a international text, in this time of the internet, which he boasts about having included, why do you even bother with a propper text book?

5.0 out of 5 stars Do you need the Hardcover edtion? 21 Aug 1999
By pushnlmts@aol.com - Published on Amazon.com
As a beginning law student, I've heard over and over again about how Black's is virtually a required book for all law students (and rightfully so). I ran out this summer and bought the hardcover book. As school is now underway, I've had to buy the paperback as well. I'm not lugging that huge book to class everyday! Just a tip so that you don't invest as much $$ as I have in one book :-)

Black's Law Dictionary is a must have if you are seeking any real sense of what Law is and how it operates and how Law is used in everyday life .When you arein a court arena you are in a world that has its own language and rules and regulations .I have the 6th edition and interested in gettin an earlier edition also . The BLD will help anyone enhance their awareness of legal terminology...helps one to Know the Ledge......

bLACK'S lAW DICTIONARY HELPS DEFINE THE MEANING OF WORDS AND CONCEPTS USED IN LAW. THE LAW LANGUAGE IS PURPOSEFULLY DECEPTIVE TO KEEP THE GENERAL PUBLIC FROM UNDERSTANDING AND THEREFOR USING THE LAW OR FEELING COMFORTABLE IN A COURT OF LAW. THIS BOOK NEEDS TO BE ON EVERYONES SHELF.

5.0 out of 5 stars Legal Terms for Lay People 29 Sep 2012
By thirsty for knowledge - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I like Black's Law Dictionary because it gives me clearly-explained definitions of legal terms I hear in the news and don't really understand. Not only am I understanding words used in law, I get to learn the pronunciations of most of them. I am a retired teacher, and I have begun taking a paralegal class just because I want so much to learn more about the law for my own self-enrichment.
