Bouvier Law Dictionary

The dictionary that Abe Lincoln used, brought up to date for the 21st century student.


 Derived from the famous 1853 law dictionary used by Daniel Webster, Abraham Lincoln, and Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr., The Bouvier Law Dictionary has been brought completely up-to-date by the distinguished and widely-published legal scholar and teacher Steve Sheppard (whose law degrees are from Oxford and Columbia Universities). Building on Bouvier's structure and entries, Professor Sheppard has added thousands of new terms and rewritten the original definitions for the modern reader. 8,500 entries explain more than 11,200 words and phrases that make sense to a student, from a source a lawyer can cite. Available in a variety of print and electronic formats, The Bouvier Law Dictionary is the go-to source for the modern student.
