NOLO's Plain English Law Dictionary

This tip is provided by Diane Ebersole with the State Bar of Michigan.

This free application is available for both iPad and iPhone. NOLO’s dictionary app was updated in October of 2010 and has even more definitions and features than the original 2009 version. NOLO’s dictionary will not compete with the $50 Black’s Law Dictionary application, but it does a good job explaining common legal terms in plain English. The NOLO dictionary is also available online from your computer. The application may prove most useful when attorneys are looking for the plain English definitions of complex legal terms to help their clients understand the legal lexicon.
