Set aside those dusty, outdated law dictionaries! Written for the 21st century, this essential reference contains complete definitions of the legal terms you need today. If you're a law student, paralegal, accountant, small business owner or librarian --nbsp;anyonenbsp;whosenbsp;work or life touches the law --nbsp;this fully up-to-date A to Z guide puts access to the law into your hands.

Nolo's Plain-English Law Dictionarynbsp;contains 3,800nbsp;plain-English legal definitions, including many newly coined terms you'll find online and off, such as ""typosquatting"" and ""patent troll"".
