Description

Finally, a legal dictionary for the 21st Century.

As the nation’s oldest and most respected provider of legal information for consumers and small businesses, Nolo now offers students, accountants, paralegals, and everyone whose work or life is touched by the law, a complete and up-to-date legal dictionary—designed for the palm of your hand.

Edited by a team of lawyers with expertise in all the vital areas of the law, Nolo’s Plain-English Law Dictionary contains nearly 4, 000 legal terms defined in everyday, understandable language. You’ll find both the legal standards—Latin terms, courtroom jargon, contract basics—and newly minted terms that reflect the ever changing language of the law today. What does it mean to get “dooced”? Do you need that “pre-dup”? Had a run-in with a “patent troll” lately? Nolo is committed to finding and defining the latest twists in legal language that have entered our daily conversations—important words not found in other legal dictionaries. Nolo’s Plain-English Law Dictionary is both authoritative and friendly, but it is not your grandfather’s law dictionary.

Main Application Features:

• contains nearly 4, 000 terms with definitions—that’s every term & definition found in the print version of Nolo’s Plain English Law Dictionary

• easy, powerful & flexible search capability: search for terms; search only within the definition; or, search for key word within either

• browse by first letter of term or by term category

• get your word of the day with a shake of the iPhone

• suggest a word: think we’ve missed a word? Suggest one with the click of a button!

• includes a full lawyer directory: search for a lawyer in your area

• no internet connection required for dictionary use

Plus, choose from one of three style themes to suit your mood: a) Classic – old leather-bound book theme, b) Modern – gray theme with a modern flair, c) Orange – brilliant orange theme

Reviews of The Print Edition:

“A unique combination of carefully researched legal scholarship and contemporary, real-world references.” – Sheldon Siegel, New York Times bestselling author of Judgment Day

“Explains thousands of common legal terms in a way anyone can understand.” – Roderic Duncan, retired California Superior Court Judge

“ As a useful and often fascination reference book, Nolo’s Plain-English Law Dictionary clearly defines basic legal terms, elusive Lain phrases, the most up-to-date legal slang and arcane oddities.

Too good to be free!

:
Disclaimer: For the record, I am not a lawyer and am not, nor ever have been, in law school, merely a person who watches too much Law & Order, so I can only review this app from the perspective of a layperson.

To echo the other reviews, I can't believe this app is free! I can attest that the definitions provided are very easy to understand even if you are a layperson. I recommended this app to my father, a C.P.A., who often needs to reference tax, estate, and business law and would recommend it to anyone else who needs to reference legal terms or definitions but is not acquainted with the intricacies of the legal system. I imagine this app could also be useful if party to a legal proceeding.

Nolo could easily charge upwards of $10 for this app, although I'm grateful that they didn't as I probably would not have purchased it if they did (as I have no real need for a law dictionary other than passing curiosity). So my suggestion to those who have even the slightest interest in legal terms: grab this app! (Another plus: it doesn't take up much space despite being an offline dictionary and it's ad free.)

One last thing, the way the alphabetical scroll functions is fantastic! I wish Apple had implemented it the same way in the iPod/Music app.

5/5 stars
