Edited by Jay M. Feinman, Distinguished Professor of Law, Rutgers University
""In addition to defining the 1,001 headwords, Feinman uses his expertise and insight to interpret clearly, succinctly, and intelligibly ten legal problems often encountered by ordinary people (e.g., what is power of attorney; how to understand a contract, how to make a living will). Summing Up: Highly recommended."—Choice"
""In a sense, the book is unique. Unlike a weighty tome, it is small, and handy. With a focus on the non-lawyer, it is simple, and direct—changing technical terms to comprehensible."—Global Law Review"
""Ideal for students and general users who may need to look up the spelling, usage, or the definition of legal terms in plain English."—American Reference Book Annual 2004"
""A dictionary useful everywhere from landlord—tenant court to the U.S. Supreme Court."—The Atlantic City Press"
""A very good alternative for the layman who neither needs nor wants the thick and heavy standard legal dictionaries."—Catholic Library World"
