Description

Written in clear, jargon-free language, this dictionary is ideal for those without a legal qualification who nevertheless need some legal knowledge, either at home or at work. Substantially revised and updated for the fourth edition, it is also a useful reference book for lawyers, students, and legal secretaries in the UK or any Commonwealth country where the legal system is founded on English law. All recent changes in the law have been incorporated, ranging from the Criminal Justice Act, developments in European law, divorce and the care and protection of children, to medical and company law.show more
