World Dictionary of Legal Abbreviations

2008, Legal Profession, Librarianship editor

General Editors: Igor I. Kavass & Mary Miles Prince

World Dictionary of Legal Abbreviations is the most comprehensive source for discovering the meaning of legal abbreviations worldwide, enabling researchers of foreign laws and legal literature to ascertain the meaning of various abbreviations and acronyms. Because most countries have no uniform system or standards for abbreviating legal terms, abbreviation development has been dependent upon the structure of the country’s language and legal system. Published in loose-leaf format for ease in updating and supplementation, this unique reference work is invaluable to the foreign or international law scholar.
