The Law Student's Dictionary by James Penner (Professor of Property Law, University College London)
The Law Student's Dictionary is an invaluable reference work for all law students. The terms have been chosen with the specific needs of the undergraduate student in mind, providing a full insight into legal terminology and ensuring students are familiar with terms they will encounter during their studies. The dictionary includes substantial entries on core student topics which outline the conceptual importance of key areas, to give students an idea of how these terms have been shaped by, and in turn shape, how lawyers think. Some older terms are also included, as although they are not used to frame the current law, students will come across them in the course of their studies and they are of historical significance. The text features cross-referencing of terms and definitions, giving students the opportunity to expand and contextualise their knowledge, and the material is presented in a new two-colour page design, which allows for quick and easy navigation.
