I'm not a lawyer, but consider myself to be a savvy layperson. There are often times in my day-to-day dealings with personal business matters, or in assisting family members with theirs, that I find myself referring to Dave Simon's New Millennium Law Dictionary to ensure my accuracy in legal terminology. I appreciate the fact that the volume is thorough, yet concise, enabling me to navigate it easily. Law dictionaries can be daunting, but this one is inviting. Sometimes I actually find myself continuing to peruse entries on a page after I've already gotten the information I was seeking, just for the sake of further interest. And occasionally I stumble upon an amusing tidbit, such as the "Cattle Rustling" entry. I guess even in today's world, the crime of stealing cattle still warrants a place in the legal lexicon. I like the fact that this book is saved as a pdf file on my computer, so it is readily at my fingertips when I most often need it - while I'm working on my computer!

The explanations and definitions in the New Millennium Law Dictionary are clear and concise. The best use of the dictionary for a practicing lawyer would be to use it to explain to clients or adversaries the exact meaning of the terms being employed in clear calm language. Doesn't cost much, and it could save a fortune in a dispute situation.

I 'sort of' know most of what I'm reading in business contracts, but every once in a while I hit a latin term, or a term that through it's specific use seems to imply something very specific ... and this .pdf is great to have to refer to. Small, easy to search and faster than running it through a web browser.
The author doesn't try to do more than explain the terms - so there isn't any bias in the dictionary, as I find online.

I don't do a lot of reviewing. I bought this book because one from one of our interns had it and I just liked the simplicity and the way it is laid out. I keep it open on my computer (I have it as a pdf.) Also the fact that it is almost free should be a major selling point.
David Simon ( i am assuming he is the same guy) also had (has) a simple book about taking law exams that helped me gain about 15% on every test I took in law school. This was a long time ago so it may not be the same author, but if you are a student you should see if you can find a copy of it.
You should buy it, don't worry, it's worth the three bucks.

As a "non-lawyer" I find this distionary very easy to use. I downloaded it on my laptop and passed it on to my daughter-in-law to review. She works as a Financial Planner at Fischer Investments and has occasions to interprete documents that contain law terminology. It will make her job easier. It is good to have everything in one place and easy to retrieve when needed.

As a lawyer I find this dictionary to be a great resource. All the legal terms you need right at your fingertips, in an easy-to-find format, and at such a reasonable price. I also intend to purchase a copy for my daughter who is in law school, it will be perfect for her as it would be for any law student. If your a lawyer this is a must have resource!

Dave Simon has constructed a terrific resource that should be helpful to lay persons and professionals alike. Easy to access and compact, its the tool to reach for when legal terminology must be clarified. Great price, too.

I loaded the dictionary onto my laptop and refer to it in meetings. Very useful to have this a keystroke away and not have to go searching on the internet. So many attorneys misuse legal terms and it is great to be able to call them out on self-serving interpretations. Very spot on in the franchise area where I would be lost without the definitions.
