5-0 out of 5 stars Black's Law Dictionary
As a corporate lawyerLiving in Mexico City Amazon is a fantastic tool which gives me access to many books I would otherwise find impossible to get. The speed is quite amazing too!

4-0 out of 5 stars Nice Look; Very Useful
I bought this dictionary along with the pocket version for school.Although I do agree with the prior rating that the cover could be slightly nicer, I am happy with my purchase. My cover has not scratched nor bent.I find the tabs very helpful.
3-0 out of 5 stars Not all that deluxe
I have to preface my review with a caveat: Black's is indispensible and if you're reading this, you need it.Also, I haven't looked through it extensively and so don't purport to rate this edition over the last one, just this deluxe version.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great for first year law students
Bought it for a friend who was a first year and it has helped him immensely in school.

3-0 out of 5 stars Redundant for law school, possibly useful later
I considered buying this when I started law school.However, my school provides law students with free subscriptions to both Westlaw and Lexis online, and the entire school is set up with wireless internet.Therefore, the full version of Black's is easily available to me online any time I'm on campus.A laptop with wireless LAN is probably more important for college students these days than most paper references.
5-0 out of 5 stars For what it's worth:
Don't take this book the wrong way. At the time of this review, it cost 29 dollars, a reasonable price when it comes to 1L book costs. It fits into a purse or backpack, if not a pocket. It will serve you well enough in Civpro or Torts in a pinch, until you can get to the Law Library and read a full size Blacks. Do NOT take this book to be an end all be all, it was never meant to be and people who gave this terrible reviews due to its lack of completeness are missing the point. This is a book for when you don't HAVE a full size Black's in front of you, which every 1L should. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Interesting but out of date and missing many key terms
Of the numerous Spanish<>English legal dictionaries I use regularly, this is consistently the one least likely to include the terms I need. I suspect it's partly because this is an abridged edition, and partly because the sources that the author(s) cite include very few publications that are even remotely recent. Another problem: the entries generally provide narrative explanations rather than functionally equivalent terms. The explanations are cogent, clear, interesting, and often establish differences in meaning between different countries. However, this approach is not helpful if you're a translator trying to figure out the best English-language equivalent for a Spanish legal term or vice versa.

2-0 out of 5 stars Diccionario Juridico not what I hoped for
As a US immigration lawyer, I was pretty disappointed with this dictionary.It had few of the terms I looked for.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great tool for translators
I am a translator and also and interpreter, and I have found that this is a great dictionary for my translations, althought I must say, that sometimes the explanations can be somewhat confusing, but I still think that is a very good dictionary in general. Just one thing.. I think the authors did miss a few words. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Good effort
I just finished reading "Black's Law Dictionary," and I must say I disagree with many of the reviews on this board. I thought the story was fairly uninteresting and the characters one-dimensional. It started strong (the "animus capiendi" scene comes to mind) but it dragged in the middle and ended flat (too much time spent on the "year-and-a-day rule"). I will admit I thoroughly enjoyed the list of British Regnal Years in Appendix G. Good effort by the author, the up-and-coming Black, but just two stars from this reviewer.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent book
I have used this dictionary for many years while I worked in a law firm in Argentina with relationships with multinatinal companies. Now that I am practising on my own I needed this book for the correct use of English legal term in my contact with internatinal clients. Great book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Delivery estimates remain estimates
Book was in good condition, however, delivery took a few days more than the maximum number of days estimated. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Good enough for me
Barron's "Dictionary of Legal Terms" is a solid text. When I asked a law friend of mine which law dictionary I should purchase he told me that "Black's" was the best law dictionary out there. However, it is rather expensive at eighty or so dollars. Even the pocket version of the text is at least twenty dollars. So I sprang for this law dictionary at about eight dollars.
5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect for everyone
Legal terms presented in a way that can be understood by all.Very helpful information in section-"KEY TO EFFECTIVE USE OF THIS DICTIONARY"

5-0 out of 5 stars I love this dictionary!
I bought this dictionary 4 years ago and since then it has been invaluable to me in getting through law school and the bar exam. My copy is so tattered and worn out, I'm thinking of buying a new one to replace it. I highly recommend it over Black's and others that have traditionally been regarded essential for law students and lawyers. Too often with the other legal dictionaries, you look up a word, and then to understand the given definition you end up having to look up additional words. Not so with this book--it lays out legal definitions in the most simple and straightforward manner possible. For many terms, it even gives short hypotheticals to illustrate the term in its proper context.

Editorial Review

To the ordinary person, who hasn't spent three years grinding through law school, legalese gets its point across as clearly and effortlessly as a dose of ancient Greek. Right up there with medical lingo, legal jargon confuses and alienates folks, makes them feel stupid and ill at ease. A translation or two, however, can go a long way toward clearing the legal air. With concise and sensible definitions, Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Extremely Useful
I'm starting my second year of law school. I got this book near the end of my first year, and it proved to be an invaluable tool for editing journals and working for law firms over the summer. I wish I had this earlier.
5-0 out of 5 stars The Best
This is, by far, the single best resource on legal usage one can buy.I never cease to be amazed at how often I pull this book off of my shelf to find it giving me a clear and accurate answer to a usage question.I purchased this book several years ago after attending one of Garner's legal writing seminars.That seminar and this book have dramatically improved my legal writing skills.Those two tools positively influence my writing every single day.If you follow Garner's advice and guidance, you will eliminate deadening and condescending legalese from your legal writing and replace it with clear and concise prose.My clients appreciate receiving contracts that are actually readable and my contracts are less frequently subject to alternative interpretations because ambiguities are largely eliminated.As a lawyer or paralegal, do yourself a favor and buy this book.Better yet, buy this book and take Garner's Advanced Legal Drafting seminar.You won't regret it.
