This is the first and most comprehensive Legal Thesaurus ever published. It is updated with 1,000 essential new terms - from "whistleblower" to "bailout". The first book of its kind when it was orginally published in 1980, Burton's Legal Thesaurus has become a staple for everyone in the legal profession. Addressing the newest concepts before the nation's highest courts, the fifth edition celebrates 35 years of this one-of-a-kind law reference tool. With 11,000 critical-to-know legal terms, synonyms, definitions, and parts of speech, Burton's is essential for: partners, associates, attorneys, and judges, who will appreciate the timeliness of the 1,000-plus new entries; law school students seeking to use a more specific word or recall a forgotten word; and journalists and scholars looking for the right word to fit the thought. Praise for previous editions of Burton's Legal Thesaurus: "A tool to strengthen the lawyer's vocabulary and improve the precision of legal writing." (Maryland Bar Journal). "Given the popularity of plain language laws, the Legal Thesaurus could be just the book to own." (United States Law Week). "The legal profession should find this volume valuable in using the exact word to convey the meaning intended." (New York State Bar Journal). "It is through the use of such a tool as the Legal Thesaurus that one may find the precise term to fit the nuances of a particular situation." (William O. Douglas, Justice, U.S. Supreme Court, 1939-1975).
