LEGAL TERMINOLOGY WITH FLASHCARDS, 4th Edition enables the beginning student to quickly grasp legal terminology through clear language and engaging repetition exercises. LEGAL TERMINOLOGY WITH FLASHCARDS, 4th Edition presents the content in an accessible way, so that students from any background can feel confident in their legal discourse, whether they're writing briefs, memorandums of law, bills of particulars, or other legal documents. Beginning with the use of a dictionary/thesaurus in each chapter, the student is immersed into nineteen separate areas of the law with phonetic pronunciations, definitions, usages, and spellings that facilitate the fastest approach to writing and speaking with the appropriate legal terms. Following mastery of each term in the dictionary/thesaurus, the student uses multiple learning formats (multiple choice, matching, fill in, true/false, sentence completion, synonym selection) to use and reuse 90-110 terms per chapter.
