abstract
"Prince's Dictionary of Legal Abbreviations contains an extensive range of acronyms, abbreviations, and symbols found in primary and secondary sources of American legal literature. Providing this information in both forward and reverse order, this book assists users in identifying the meaning of abbreviations and acronyms (Part I) and in identifying abbreviations for titles, names, and terms (Part II). Titles, names, and terms often have multiple abbreviations or acronyms. This book, without distinction, includes abbreviations established by well-recognized authorities such as The Bluebook: A Uniform System of Citation as well as abbreviations otherwise devised by authors in their efforts to shorten legal references and citations. The Seventh Edition provides a comprehensive list of abbreviations (for nearly 36,000 terms) used in legal encyclopedias, law dictionaries, law reporters, loose-leaf services, law reviews, legal treatises, legal reference books and citators. In addition to providing the meaning of abbreviations and acronyms, the reverse dictionary also enables the user to locate the abbreviations for titles, terms and names used in legal literature." -- Publisher's website.
