Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Throughout the history of western civilization there have existed certain principles of law which have become established as accepted rules or "maxims" of law. Sir Edward Coke said, "A maxim is so called because its dignity is chiefest, and its authority the most certain, and because universally approved by all."

As an example, one maxim of law states: "In a doubtful matter, the negative is to be regarded rather than the affirmative." Another one states: "Every consent involves a submission; but a mere submission does not necessarily involve consent."

This book contains over 1600 maxims of law which are listed under 105 different subject headings such as: Agent, Agreement, Consent, Construction & Interprtation, Contracts, Equity, Fraud, Good Faith, Intent, Jurisdiction, Legal Capacity, Personal Rights, Presumption, Remedy, Truth, War, Wills, Wrongful Acts, etc.

The book also contains over 300 Latin words and phrases and their English meaning. Maxims of Law is an excellent reference tool and will help anyone who wants a better understanding of law.
