Black's 7th Edition
West Group has published the seventh edition of its classic Black's Law Dictionary. First published in 1891, it is considered the standard authority for legal definitions, notes West.
The latest release was edited by Bryan Garner, who also is editor of Modern Legal Usage (Oxford, 2d ed. 1995), and The Elements of Legal Style (Oxford, 1991).
More than 30 lawyers, judges and scholars reviewed the manuscript for accuracy and completeness, advises West.
The seventh edition contains more than 4,500 new terms, such as "cybersquatting," "Megan's Law," and "Y2K warranty," reports West. For the first time, the dictionary includes quotes from scholarly sources, including treatises, law reviews and opinions, to demonstrate context.
