The ninth edition of Osborn's Concise Law Dictionary has been substantially updated by a team of contributors from the University of Northumbria at Newcastle. They have retained the distinctive features of previous editions whilst drawing 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.
Changes to this edition include: greatly expanded coverage of EU law; fully revised and updated entries take into account the recent legal devdopments including new terminology introduced by the Woolf Reforms, the Human Rights Act 1998, as well as developments in intellectual property, environment and data protection law; and more traditional, Latin phrases not readily available in any other publication.
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.
