Summary

Legal Terminology with Flashcards, third edition transforms the student into someone who is proficient in the language of law: communicating correctly to clients, lawyers, judges, and the police. Beginning with the use of a dictionary/thesaurus in each chapter, the student is immersed into nineteen separate areas of the law with phonetic pronunciations, definitions, usages, and spellings that facilitate the quickest approach to writing and speaking with the appropriate legal terms. Following mastery of each term in the dictionary/thesaurus, the student uses multiple learning formats (multiple choice, matching, fill in, true/false, sentence completion, synonym selection, and a puzzle) to use and reuse between 90-110 terms per chapter. The numerous exercises allow the student to master the terms, reinforcing their meanings, usages, pronunciations and spellings.The biggest overall benefit to each student is the confidence to begin using legal terminology in the writing of briefs, memorandum of law, bills of particulars, and other legal documents or communicating by email, in person, or via telephone. Mastering legal terminology is the key to advancing in any legal position and this book makes it fast, easy and enjoyable.
