Description
First published in 1927, Osborn's is the classic, concise dictionary of legal terms. Renowned for its comprehensive coverage including an extensive listing of journals, law reports and their abbreviations, it offers speedy access to a mass of technical terms and phrases in both English and European law. Extensive legal referencing takes all entries beyond definitions and basic context to provide a solid basis for further research.
The elevent edition of Osborn's Concise Law Dictionary has been extensively updated by a team of contributors from Northumbria University. They have retained the distinctive features of previous editions whilst drawsing on their expertise in many diverse areas of law to explain often complex legal vocabulary in a way that is informative and easy to understand.
This edition includes:
•    Reforms to the tribunal and in the provision and regulation of legal services
•    Fully revised and updated entries take into account recent legal developments
     including new terminology introduced by the Sexual Offences Act 2003 and the
     Constitutional Reform Act 2005, as well as reforms to the law relating to
     commonhold, land registration, licensing, gambling, children and child protection
     and mental capacity.
•    Maintains its traditional coverage of Latin phrases and its index to journals.
Osborn's Concise Law Dictionary is an essential reference for anyone studying law, as well as those in legal practice. It will also be of considerable use to accountants and anyone working in commerce or industry.
