Oran's Dictionary of the Law, Fourth Edition, is the easiest to use introduction to legal terminology and concepts on the market. It contains clear definitions of the words that most paralegals, paralegal students, and persons in related fields need to know. The book gives the reader the core of each legal idea and helps them understand the American legal system as well as how to approach research tasks. The book precisely explains contracts, laws, court decisions, and lawyers. This new fourth edition includes a CD-ROM that contains all terms and definitions in the book and over a thousand new and revised definitions. It also includes an updated section on computerized legal research and overhauled sections on bankruptcy, intellectual property, litigation support, national security and other rapidly changing subject areas.
