Legal Terminology, 5e places emphasis on developing an understanding of legal terminology through the study of law itself and on using legal terminology in many different ways rather than relying solely on rote memory.  This edition continues to serve as a  text/workbook and includes numerous student activities that assist instructors in teaching students to work with legal terminology; attention-getting motivational devices (including cartoons, graphics from the Library of Congress, and the “Word Wise,” “Web Wise,” and “Constitutional Wise” features) help to provide clear, concise explanations of the law.   The Table of Contents has been revised to include a new chapter, Court Systems and Jurisdiction” and each chapter now begins with an outline to give you a quick picture of what students can expect to learn in the chapter.
