Butterworths Encyclopaedic Australian Legal Dictionary

In the Encyclopaedic Australian Legal Dictionary, legal terms and definitions are presented in an Australian context and supported by both the Australian legislature and the judiciary. Butterworths Online, launched in March 1997, offers an extensive collection of Butterworths primary and secondary legal publications.

The Encyclopaedic Australian Legal Dictionary is a unique online reference work with over 25,000 legal definitions. As the name suggests, this legal dictionary has a strong Australian orientation and contains many legal terms and definitions that are not found in American or English legal dictionaries. Legal definitions and terms from a number of other non-legal topics such as economics and trade are also included in the database. In addition, this law dictionary has been expanded to include over 5,000 links to LexisNexis Australian Law Reports online, as well as links to additional citations in Australian Legal Words and Phrases.
