Customer Reviews
With obscure terms like 'emphyteusis' and 'jactitation,' the language of Louisiana’s civil law can sometimes prove confusing for students and even for seasoned practitioners. But the 'Louisiana Civil Law Dictionary' can help. It defines every word and phrase contained in the index to the Louisiana Civil Code, plus many more — in clear and concise language — and provides current citations to the relevant statutes, code articles, and cases. <br /><br />Whether you are a student, researcher, lawyer, or judge, if you deal with Louisiana and its laws, this volume will prove indispensable. It is also a valuable resource for notaries, paralegals, and those studying for the bar exam. <br /><br />No doubt common law practitioners in other states, too, will find ready uses for a dictionary that translates civil law terminology into familiar concepts; they will know how 'naked ownership' differs from 'usufruct.' And since the civil law dominates other legal systems, this book will find a home with libraries and scholars the world over, anywhere there is a need to compare civil law terms with those of the common law.<br /><br />Quality ebook formatting from Quid Pro Books features active contents, linked notes and URLs, and literally hundreds of linked cross-references — for ready association of related topics. Print editions are available of this valuable resource, yet the ebook format is not just a textual replication of the print book or a PDF. Instead, the ebook is carefully designed to take full advantage of the ereader's optimal arrangements and capabilities, whether the ebook is read on a dedicated device or by using an app.<br /><br />“Rome and Kinsella have done a huge service to legal scholarship by assembling the 'Louisiana Civil Law Dictionary' — a splendid resource for those seeking to understand the rich vocabulary of Louisiana law.”<br />— Bryan A. Garner, President, LawProse, Inc.; and Editor in Chief, 'Black’s Law Dictionary'<br /><br />“For ready reference on the desk or in a personal or law firm library, in the office of a civilian of any walk of practice or intellectual endeavor, this enormously helpful dictionary is a must. This scholarly reference is essential to the study of the civil law tradition; the 'Louisiana Civil Law Dictionary' serves as a gateway to understanding the civil law system embraced by the majority of legal systems in the world.”<br />— J.

<p><b>The <i>Eats, Shoots & Leaves</i> of legalese, this witty narrative journey through the letter of the law offers something for language lovers and legal eagles alike</b></p><p>This clever, user-friendly discourse exposes the simple laws lurking behind decorative, unnecessary, and confusing legal language. For better or for worse, the instruction manual for today's world is written by lawyers. Everyone needs to understand this manual-but lawyers persist in writing it in language no one can possibly decipher.</p><p>Why accuse someone of making "material misstatements of fact," when you could just call them a liar? What's the point of a "last" will and testament if, presumably, every will is your last? Did you know that "law" derives from a Norse term meaning "that which is laid down"? So tell your boss to stop laying down the law-it already is.</p><p>The debate over Plain vs. Precision English rages on in courtrooms, boardrooms, and, yes, even bedrooms. Here, Adam Freedman explores the origins of legalese, interprets archaic phrasing (witnesseth!), explains obscure and oddly named laws, and disputes the notion that lawyers are any smarter than the rest of us when judged solely on their briefs. (A brief, by the way, is never so.)</p>
