The Australian Law Dictionary is a key reference for those who need familiarity with, and knowledge of Australian legal terms.

Designed for students in response to research, the ALD is structured to ensure comprehensive coverage of core legal content. Readers are encouraged to learn the meaning of a particular term, link it with related concepts, and locate it within the larger body of law.

Each copy comes with a free Australian Law Dictionary 2nd edition obook. This is an online ebook that gives students the freedom to search for the terms they need through any internet connected device without needing to download or pay extra for special software. Students can also browse alphabetically through the words, which is important if they are unsure of spelling.

            Very useful as a secondary reference for studying law subjects. Explains terminology and legal "jargon" in an easy to understand way which helped me to understand aspects of my law text which were not so easy to understand.
