I bought the book because I'm taking a legal secretary course online. The book has the legal word, definitions, how to pronounce the word, and examples of how to use the word. It's very useful. There's only one flaw I found to the book, and that is, strangely enough, that a few legal words I learned from my legal secetary course aren't in the dictionary. The book just needs to add a few more legal words to it and it would be perfect.

I can't say I'm very impressed with this books but it works for me. I'm not a professional lawyer whatsoever but it helps to hammer it home when I need a reference regarding the law.

It's a dictionary of legal terms. Not very exciting or sexy, but gets the job done.

This was really helpful for me while taking some legal courses in college. It is helpful for just every day terminology as well. I highly recommend it for anyone who is just interested to someone who is looking for a reference for the university setting.

This is a great "little" book. I'm a process server, and file alot of documents, speak to alot of people about documents, and although not being an attorney I can't assist, but it sure is helpful to understand what people are speaking about, this book helps me understand. The explanations of the words is a plus. Get it!

This book is exactly as advertised. I continue to use it to look up legal terms which are easy for me to otherwise misunderstand. If you're considering getting it, I think you'll be satisfied.
i thought i would like but i didn't, maybe this would make a good book for law school student. but for sure it is not for a police officer or for a police job.
