Seller was spot on with the second hand description; definitely recommend!
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.
More disappointingly, the definitions don't go on to prescribe usage of the words, or usage in a legal context. There are lots of words which are legally related, but are more procedural, but these pad it out a lot, but aren't worth noting down. It would be like having a sports dictionary which mentioned a thousand makes of football. The best example was "person". It completely avoids the legal definition, and so, also avoids the whole aspects of you having a person, etc..
This is one of those things which you could buy, go to use once, become thoroughly annoyed as you probably could have written a better definition yourself, then never see any need to look at again, apart from to annoy yourself.
