Black's Law Dictionary has come in handy on many occassions, especially during Debate meets. It is considered the most reliable source for definitions concerning the debate topic.

Awesome dictionary. Brings fear into the opposition in any court case. Used in the Court of Protection and the opposing counsel looked nerveously over at my team which gave us the edge and won.

Sincerely

Angelton

a tome of some substance 28 Dec. 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The point of contention which normally arises in a discussion of this Pocket Edition of Black's Law Dictionary is the price. Many other products exist which are less than half the $ price tag.
The only response is that these other books are a waste of money. Dollar for dollar there is no better option than this near perfect book. The months of preparation by renowned lexicographer Bryan Garner (author of the Dictionary of Modern American Usage), along with legal librarians and any number of other professionals and assistants have created a volume that will serve the law student especially well.
The relief of not carrying the full dictionary in their backpacks is worth the students' money. And every student should own both a full and a pocket dictionary. These are indispensable tools.
If you are not going to carry Black's Pocket Dictionary you are better off using the full 7th edition available (maybe) at the reference desk of your law library. Save your money.

Best of legal dictionaries; a "must have" 11 May 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is the best of the legal dictionaries. It is much better than Barrons. I bought a copy as a first-year law student, and still keep it with me. Highly recommended.

BLACKS LAW DIC 20 Jan. 2009
By Dan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is the short version good for your backpack. If you want the grandaddy for your law office, use the big bucks. Quick reference is good when you are away from your internet (Westlaw and Lexis Nexis).
