Type the correct spelling of the term in the search box. If you are not sure how to spell the term, then just type in the first few letters of the term and hit the search button.

You can also browse definitions alphabetically.

In the search listings, you will find "Less Accurate Matches." Any terms under this is found in the definition as oppose to the term itself.

This legal term dictionary is used to provide definitions to legal terms. In this case, you may not find all definitions to non-legal terms.

In the event that you find a definition that sounds outdated, it could be that this dictionary was written in 1856. Some definitions have changed since then.

For example, the term " jury" means "A body of men selected according to law, for the purpose of deciding some controversy."
Today, the jury is not made of only men; therefore, this definition may sound outdated.
