Mass Market Edition
Steven H. Gifis - All books by this author
This latest edition has been updated with new and revised definitions to keep it current and at the forefront of essential information for those seeking a timely legal resource. It includes recent modifications in federal and state law, making it a quick-reference guide for law students, legal professionals, and interested laypersons. The author defines more than 5,000 legal terms, using nontechnical language that remains legally accurate. Terms are documented with citations and apply to civil procedure, commercial and contract law, constitutional law, criminal law, property law, and torts. This is a "mass-market-size" paperback. This Law Dictionary is also available from Barron's in a "Trade Edition" that features larger pages with large type.
EXCULPATORY refers to evidence and/or statements which tend to clear, justify, or excuse a defendant from alleged fault or guilt. See 501 S.W. 2d 101, 103. Contrast incriminate; inculpatory.
From the reviews:
Praise for the previous edition
“The value of a good LAW DICTIONARY cannot be overstated. Most lawyers use Black’s Law Dictionary for citation purposes, but this is the much better dictionary for comprehending legal terminology.”
