Dictionaries are obviously NOT 'how to' guides, nor are they 'primers' outlining the scope of our legal rights, duties and obligations in particular situations. But, whether we are operating, or acting in any one of a potentially limitless number of rule-driven commercial settings, or perhaps within the scope of other rules or 'standards' driven organizations or forums, and even when we are merely causally interacting with those around us, it is obvious that knowing what legal 'words and phrases' mean, can be very useful criteria for enhancing our understanding, including in possibly helping us be unconstrained to engage with others openly and freely, while simultaneously protecting ourselves from unfortunate or unforeseen legal consequences.
And for legal practitioners and others, a good legal dictionary can be a solid quick-reference guide in more precisely framing everything from written legal advice, to moving papers, or a myriad of other possible legal writings, or even when giving someone oral advice that necessarily seeks to warn then against possible risks. E.g., "Caveat emptor."
Especially when combined with a useful and up to date 'primer' on American law, students, business people, and even other professionals can greatly benefit as a result of keeping an easily accessible legal dictionary close at hand.
