Legal definitions for European terminology

Page history last edited by tina.tse@... 5 years, 9 months ago

Users may be familiar with sources of UK legal definitions but are there any equivalents for European terminology?


  • 'Find a legal term' field from the LexisLibrary's homepage works better but there is also the 'Explore' search option
  • Westlaw UK's 'Index of Legal Terms' allows you to search across "Stroud's Judicial Dictionary of Words and Phrases", "Jowitt's Dictionary of English Law" and "Osborn's Concise Law Dictionary" as well as the Statutory definitions that form part of Westlaw UK Legislation documents. 
  • WestlawNext using the search strategy "advanced: defin! /s (retroactiv! retrospective)" or equivalent in the EU cases database
  • Murdochs Irish Legal Companion
  • Search EUR-Lex for mentions in EU cases and legislation  
  • EU terminology database
  • To limit by topic, use EUR-Lex's Directory of case law 
  • Eurojargon
