First published in 1890, Stroud is long established as the foremost dictionary of the English law as it has been interpreted by the courts and in statutory material. In three volumes, Stroud is a comprehensive and indispensable tool for the practitioner and a unique source for the researcher, providing quick access to exact, authoritative meanings.
Stroud's Judicial Dictionary remains the starting point for research into the meaning of all words and phrases that come to be used in a legal context. Unlike Jowitt's Dictionary of English Law, which provides an authoritative definition of technical legal concepts, Stroud records how any expression that happens to occur in a legal document or be referred to for a legal purpose has been construed by the courts or defined in legislation.
