The most authoritative work in its field, An English-Spanish Dictionary of Criminal Law and Procedure contains common legal terms and expressions used in the United States which are translated into and defined in Spanish. The second edition has been completely revised and enlarged with twice the content of the first edition. It is the first legal lexicography work to include translations based on the criminal procedure law reforms that have been sweeping Latin America.
All of the terms, expressions and definitions are solidly grounded on statutory law, caselaw, scholarly works and monolingual law dictionaries from the U.S. and all 20 Spanish-speaking countries worldwide. In addition to some 1,100 entries and their corresponding single or multiple equivalents, which are displayed in a straightforward and naturally intuitive format, this incredibly unique bilingual law dictionary includes a variety of relevant explanatory and contextual elements including lexical and legal comments, examples of target-language laws, comparisons of similar terms and concepts, synonyms, abbreviations, translation pitfalls explained, translation examples in context, related terms, cross references and legal citations.
