Essential Latin for Lawyers

In this handbook, VerSteeg—a former Latin teacher and now a law professor—provides translations, discussions, and explanations of Latin legal terminology that law students and lawyers are most likely to use. He then explains the use of the Latin terminology with respect to its broader legal context. Unlike other reference books, this book is arranged by subject areas in law, such as constitutional law, contracts, property, torts, general terms, etc. The book also contains a glossary of approximately 290 Latin terms that occur frequently in legal writing, an appendix, and a guide to classical Latin pronunciation.

"The author explains the use of Latin terminology through excellent case and historical references. This delightful book should be required reading for all students."
