Jowitt’s Dictionary of English Law

  /  Jowitt’s Dictionary of English Law

In 2007 I persuaded Sweet & Maxwell to mount an exercise designed to revive Jowitt’s Dictionary of English Law, a much-loved and highly respected work that was rapidly slipping into regretted obsolescence after a lapse of about 30 years. We assembled a panel of specialist contributing editors that included academics, practitioners, and judges, and together we spent two years producing the third edition, which seems to have been well-received.

The fifth edition of Jowitt’s Dictionary of English Law came out in August 2019.
