About the Encyclopedia of Law

“A legal reference work is useful only to the extent that it offers three things: reasonable completeness; intelligible arrangement; and accuracy. The last two overlap. If cases are put into the wrong categories or footnotes, or if the categories are too big, then legal research becomes
laborious. Worse still, it becomes incomplete and misleading.” (J.E. CÔTÉ AND D.J. MACGREGOR)

Save time and access relevant information in a convenient, fast, and reliable way using the leading free global legal information discovery platform. The Encyclopedia of Law is a powerful reference platform that is essential for legal researchers, law school students, and the interested readers. Using a wide range of resources, including legal dictionaries, legal thesaurus, and peer reviewed and indexed entries with over 1,2 million records from 124 jurisdictions across more than 145 legal and related disciplines, users and researchers can improve productivity and facilitate important discoveries with the Encyclopedia of Law.
