1001 Legal Words You Need to Know

“Ideal for students and general users who may need to research the spelling, use, or definition of legal terms in plain English.” – American Reference Book Annual 2004 – “In addition to defining the 1,001 keywords, Feinman uses his expertise and insight to solve ten commonly encountered legal problems (for example, what is a power of attorney; how to understand a contract, how to draw up a living will). Conclusion: Highly recommended. 1001 Legal Words You Need to Know explains and highlights the most difficult and mysterious vocabulary an American faces – that of the law. This comprehensive – but never condescending – guide to the language of the American legal system carefully defines and explains each term, and many entries contain additional notes and a sample sentence. These notes contain information about the grammar associated with certain terms, as well as an etymology section useful for finding the linguistic origins of each term. American and British spellings are distinguished (license vs license), as well as singular and plural forms (dictum vs. dictation). In addition, the book includes a series of quick mini-guides on legal troubleshooting, providing information on understanding wills, trusts, and inheritances, granting power of attorney, understanding contracts, understanding contracts, what to do if you`re sued, choosing a lawyer, exploring law school, and enjoying police and legal dramas. The overview contains a long list of legal aid organizations and a useful bibliography of books on law and lawyers for further reading.

Written for ordinary people who just want to know “the basics,” 1001 Legal Words You Need To Know is the perfect size and scope for anyone trying to see through the jargon of the American legal system.
