This acclaimed dictionary is the most comprehensive of its kind, with over 4,200 concise, informative entries on all aspects of English law, with 200 entries new to this volume. The Dictionary defines all the major terms, concepts, processes, and organization of the legal system--with new coverage of important recent legislation and expanded coverage of criminology and law enforcement.
