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.

I have studied all aspects of Tort, Family, Business, Criminal, Property, Land, Contract Law and Civil and Criminal Litigation at Level 3 and every word I have wanted to look up has been in this dictionary. It has been my life line throughout my studies. A must have for all law students at every level.

It's a really good law dictionary that covered every important and basic terms and events in there. It's comprehensive and concise. It would be a really helpful reference or tool book or undergraduate or a-level law students.

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!

I brought this book to help to understand the terms used on my surveying course. This has been a gift from heaven already, it helps transform the most complicated legal (sometimes made up, nonexistant)words into normal english that even i can understand!!!

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!
