First published in 1927, Osborn’s is the classic, concise dictionary of legal terms. Renowned for its comprehensive coverage including an extensive listing of journals, law reports and their abbreviations, it offers speedy access to a mass of technical terms and phrases in both English and European law.

Extensive legal referencing takes all entries beyond definitions and basic context to provide a solid basis for further research.

The twelfth edition of Osborn’s Concise Law Dictionary has been extensively updated by a team of contributors from Northumbria University. They have retained the distinctive features of previous editions whilst drawing on their expertise in many diverse areas of law to explain often complex legal vocabulary in a way that is informative and easy to understand.

Osborn’s Concise Law Dictionary is an essential reference for anyone studying law, as well as those in legal practice. It is of considerable use to accountants and anyone working in commerce or industry.
