Overview
THE FIRST AND MOST COMPREHENSIVE LEGAL THESAURUS EVER PUBLISHED

Updated with 1,000 essential new terms--from "whistleblower" to "bailout"

Addressing the newest concepts before the nation's highest courts, the fifth edition celebrates 35 years of this one-of-a-kind law reference tool. With 11,000 critical-to-know legal terms, synonyms, definitions, and parts of speech, Burton's is essential for:

  • Partners, associates, attorneys, and judges, who will appreciate the timeliness of the 1,000-plus new entries
  • Law school students seeking to use a more specific word or recall a forgotten word
  • Journalists and scholars looking for the right word to fit the thought
