5.0 étoiles sur 5 Keep this Handy 15 octobre 2007
Par J. Moore - Publié sur
I keep this legal dictionary at my right hand on my desk and refer to it almost daily. It is a perferct legal dictionary for non-lawyers.

I'm not a lawyer, but have been involved with litigation as a plaintiff and am training as an expert witness. Sometimes it's helpful to know what "voir dire" and "subpoena duces tecum" mean. Even for somebody who's studied Latin and French, lawyers sometimes pronounce things differently than you'd expect - and this dictionary has helped.

I also appreciate having a copy of the constitution in the back, as well as a guide to the judicial system. Included is a bare-bones outline of criminal and civil procedure which will be helpful for the layperson. The appendix also has lists of important cases and important laws (can you remember Marbury vs. Madison from high school civics?).

I know that Black's Law Dictionary, Eighth Edition (Black's Law Dictionary (Standard Edition)) is the standard, but you can't beat this dictionary for its price, size, and coverage.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Very Useful 12 juin 2008
Par Randy Given - Publié sur
I had planned on buying "Black's Law Dictionary", but the review of this dictionary made me think twice. I did a comparison of some key words and phrases between these two and several others. This one was the winner.

The price was not an object, but it sure is nice to pocket the extra money. This dictionary had similar definitions, but slightly more readable. What was the tipping point were the additional description of how they are used -- not just the definition, but was it means and some historical usages.

The extras at the back are nice. They will probably be more useful than I had suspected, especially the summaries of important Supreme Court cases.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Difficult look-up on Kindle Fire 26 août 2012
Par tourer99 - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I purchased this for my Kindle Fire based on the good reviews I've seen on Amazon. From a content standpoint, it seems to have everything and more that I've been looking for. However, like the New Oxford American Dictionary supplied with the Kindle Fire, I haven't found an easy way to look up a definition. If you use the "search" function, a slow global search of the entire Law Dictionary is initiated. For example, a search for "probate" returns all mentions of 'probate' throughout the dictionary. If you are lucky enough to wind up on a page that has a link to the actual term, then clicking on the link will take you right to it. Some terms are listed alphabetically in the "list of group entries" section of the book. However they are not clickable links. On the Kindle Fire, pressing and holding over one of these terms does pull up it's definition, not from the Law Dictionary but instead from the New Oxford dictionary built into the Kindle. It's odd that looking a term up in the Law Dictionary returns a definition from the standard dictionary. Maybe I'm asking too much from an eBook, but it seems that one of the primary functions of an electronic dictionary is its ability to provide easy and reliable look-up.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Good for Kindle 13 janvier 2012
Par Leo Romero - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle
I sampled three popular law dictionaries for Kindle (1) Law Dictionary, (Mass Market) 6th Ed. (Barron's Legal Guides) , (2) Merriam-Webster's Dictionary of Law, and (3) Nolo's Plain-English Law Dictionary. By far, the best I'd seen is Barron's. Among other things, instant search is enabled, and there are hotlinks to related terms. Webster's is next (e.g it's got hotlinks, but shows only one definition per page). Nolo is the worst; it's like all they did was convert the text. Try before you buy.
