Burtons Legal Thesaurus 5th Edition: Over 10,000 Synonyms, Terms, And Expressions Specifically Related To The Legal Profession

THE FIRST AND MOST COMPREHENSIVE LEGAL THESAURUS EVER PUBLISHED Updated with 1,000 essential new terms-- ranging from "whistleblower," "bailout," "fiscal cliff, and "cyberbullying," to "pyramid scheme," "inside information," "perfect storm,""fracking," and "hacking."
The first book of its kind when it was orginally published in 1980, Burton's Legal Thesaurus has become a staple for everyone in the legal profession. 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
