Hello everyone,

I was wondering if anyone can help me fine an online legal glossary Ar/En. I have in hand several legal dictionaries but I am still unable to find a very large number of terms.

I was also wondering if anyone can recommend a good and fairly "comprehensive" legal dictionary. I know that the idea of a completely comprehensive dictionary or glossary is still inexistent, but I'd appreciate any advice or recommendation you can give me.

I can share with you the following sites:

Thank you all!

"Superior Court of California" glossary Jan 20, 2008

The Superior Court of California glossary for court interpreters
http://www.saccourt.com/geninfo/legal_glossaries/glossaries/Arabic_English_Legal_Glossary.pdf

فوق الـ100 صفحة، عثرت عليها الآن فقط - أرجو أن تكون مفيدة، لكن ما يقلقني هو سوء استخدام "الهمزة" فوق كل كلمة تبدأ بحرف الألف "أنذار، أستيلاء" بما في ذلك "ال" التعريف!!

Please be careful when using this glossary Jan 20, 2008

In addition to its unusual orthography, the glossary's Arabic definitions need a good scrubbing. Notice, for instance, how "manslaughter" was translated.

105 pages, however... Jan 20, 2008

Thank you Nisrin for the link, it contains a large number of terms and may be used as a reference. However you are both right, not only spelling mistakes abound page after page, mainly in the Arabic equivalents, the translations and definitions are not reliable, but afterall what site is completely reliable?

We shall never stop searching, that is our destiny:)

A printed dictionary Jan 20, 2008

Hello Wa'ad,

There is a new dictionary ar-eng-fr of legal terms:
Glossary of legal terms by Mona Joreige, Librairie du Liban, 2007

It might not be exhaustive but compared to the Faruqi it is excellent
with eng and fr indexes.

I find it really useful

Good luck in your search
