Jonar Nader is the technology writer for Butterworths Concise Australian Legal Dictionary, prepared under the General Editorship of the Hon Dr Peter Nygh and Associate professor Peter Butt. It provides practitioners, law students, and the general public with a much needed reference.

It contains over 8,000 terms, presented in an Australian context and supported by Australian legislative and judicial authority, wherever it exists.

The list of terms was compiled by surveying a wide array of law reports, statues from all Australian jurisdictions, and leading legal texts.

  • Explanations of well-known rules and principles of law
  • Brief descriptions of landmark decisions of the High Court of Australia
  • Biographical entries for significant legal historians, scholars, and jurisprudential figures
  • Jurisprudential and criminological terms
