As knowledge of Latin continues to diminish, its frequent use in cases, textbooks, treaties, and scholarly works baffles law students, practitioners, and scholars alike. Many of the Latin terms commonly used by international lawyers are not included in some of the more popular law
dictionaries. Terms and phrases included in modern dictionaries usually offer nothing more than a literal translation without sufficient explanation or context provided.

The Guide to Latin in International Law provides a comprehensive approach and includes both literal translations and definitions with several useful innovations. Included is not only the modern English pronunciation but also the classical or restored pronunciation. Its etymology is more complete
than the leading law dictionary on the market, and the definition for each term includes examples used in context whenever helpful. Each entry is also cross-referenced to related terms for ease of use. This updated edition is the quintessential desktop reference for understanding Latin terms and
phrases across all areas of international law.
