tip7Aug2015_1Having trouble defining an obscure or vague legal term?  Consider consulting Emond Publishing’s outstanding Free Legal Glossary.  This free online glossary of over 1,000 legal terms is composed of the multitude of terms and phrases defined throughout Emond’s legal textbook collection.  You can find the glossary at Emond.ca.

What sets this resource apart from other legal dictionaries is it leads you directly to the particular Emond text that defined the term.  For example, selecting the link immediately below abatement (wills) indicates this definition came from Wills and Estates, 3rd Edition.

In her SlawTip on this resource, Words that Lead to Sources, Shaunna Mireau explains that the glossary could help you “identify the specific area of law that the key term is leading you to.”  Potentially, a term in the glossary may lead you towards a relevant secondary source.

If you have any questions, ask a Law Society Librarian.  We are pleased to provide legal research services to Saskatchewan members in person, on the telephone, or by email.
