This dictionary is written in clear, jargon-free language for people who need concise information about every aspect of the law. Substantially revised and expanded for this fifth edition, it is a legal guide to the language and concepts of law in the United Kingdom or any Commonwealth country where the legal system is founded on English law. The dictionary features over 3650 entries defining and explaining the major terms, concepts, processes, and organization of the law, which have been compiled by practising lawyers. Revisions include all legal developments since the publication of the previous edition in 1997, covering new legal terms that have resulted from Lord Woolf's reform of the justice system.
