Civil Law Dictionary Reviewed

Last year, Gre­gory W. Rome co-authored the Civil Law Dic­tio­nary with scholar and attor­ney Stephan Kin­sella. The book has been get­ting some renewed atten­tion lately.

Last month, Philip Gragg reviewed the Dic­tio­nary in the lat­est issue of LSU’s Jour­nal of Civil Law Stud­ies. From the article:

This work is a great access point to Louisiana law, par­tic­u­larly for those unfa­mil­iar with the state. It is also a quick ref­er­ence that could be used by practitioners.

And today, Jeff Richard­son reviewed the elec­tronic ver­sion of the Dic­tio­nary on his blog, iPhone J.D. His bot­tom line:

If you prac­tice law in Louisiana, or if you just want to impress your friends with legal terms that almost sound naughty such “naked owner” and “usufruct,” then con­sider get­ting this ebook for your iPad and iPhone.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to Mr. Rome on his accom­plish­ment and its warm reception.
