5.0 out of 5 stars You will not need any other legal dictionary, 9 Aug 2005
By 
This review is from: Black's Law Dictionary: Standard Edition (Hardcover)
Despite apparently having an American slant, this covers English law excellently well, too.
Apparently utterly exhaustive.
The definitions are logically grouped (e.g. under the heading "contract", there are definitions of zillions of types).
The various distinct meanings are set out and elaborated upon separately.
The book is excellent for highlighting current usage and also indicating historical, now defunct usages of terms and provides you with the vocabulary and broader means to express yourself in legal terms.
I'm a legal translator, and this book has revealed more to me about the law over the last couple of weeks than other legal dictionaries have over the course of years.
I have some legal training, but this is not required to be able to use this dictionary.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for legal and corporate translators, 18 April 2009

This review is from: Black's Law Dictionary: Standard Edition (Hardcover)
As a translator, I need to understand the source text as much as I can in order to produce a meaningful and accurate translation. I was recommended this dictionary by my teacher of legal translation and it is probably one of the best dictionaries in my library. Of course there are good bilingual English-Spanish dictionaries out there, but nothing compares to a good monolingual when you want to know the meaning. The "Black's" is comprehensive, provides clear explanations, and contains a pile of information about the US' legal system, as well as British law to a certain extent. I sincerely recommend this dictionary to all translators out there!

5.0 out of 5 stars The best law dictinary that i ha ever had, 3 Sep 2007
When i got this dictionary i felt very glad to have it in my library. whenever you stuck on any legal term and if you dont sure what does it mean this dıctionary will be the best way to find the meaning of the legal term. It is certain that legal terms are very important as they may have another meaning you never lost your way when you read it through and You never get confused because every term is explained very deeply. It is bit heavy but nevertheless its worth it to carry out. In my personel opinion it is absolutely usefull. İt looks very smart and it gives you power to be a good lawyer.
