I was wondering if you could help me find a good law dictionary/ glossary, English - Italian on the Internet.

Thank you.

My advice Jan 19, 2010

I don't translate into Italian, but the situation could be very similar to that of Spanish. I would sincerely recommend that if you plan to do legal translation in the future you look for monolingual legal dictionaries in the two languages (in the case of English I'd recommend the Black's dictionary) and also some bilingual English-Italian dictionary. The monolingual dictionaries are a must as the legal system in English-speaking countries can be very different from the Spanish one --and the Italian one, for that matter--.

Online dictionaries or glossaries out there are generally low-quality, and you certainly don't want to deliver a wrong translation.

I agree with what Tomás Cano Binder says. For accuracy you should not rely on word for word translations, however, with that in mind, bilingual glossaries can still be useful. There are a number of Italian-English legal dictionaries/glossaries listed at the following address:
