44th Most Popular Page, Needs EXPANSION[edit]

This page is the 44th most popular page in Wikipedia. It really needs more content. I however, am only in a position to complain, unfortunately. Aldie 13:23 Oct 24, 2002 (UTC) If justice is defined as the fair, impartial consideration of opposing interests,are law opposing interests, are law and justice the same thing —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:15, 14 January 2008 (UTC) Adding my voice to this: if there are Wikipedians out there with legal training, this article could really use some attention. I am going to try to do a little bit for it, but, as the cliché goes, I am not a lawyer, so I don't think I'm really the right person to step up and take leadership, since I would be amateurishly trying to figure out things in an area where I expect there are plenty of people with real expertise. (I am a big fan of dictionaries, though; at a minimum, I'll try to contribute the results of the research question that brought me here.) Really, though, given the significance of the book, I'm sure there's a whole lot more to be said about it than is in the article now. LiberalArtist (talk) 20:29, 16 March 2015 (UTC)

2nd Ed. Search[edit]

Can someone please find an online version of the 2nd edition? True 15:27, 26 May 2006 (UTC)

3.1, "Some online legal dictionaries"[edit]

Is section 3.1, "Some online legal dictionaries," appropriate content for the Black's Law Dictionary page? Wouldn't it be better suited for the generic Law Dictionary page?

Actually, that's rhetorical, I'm just going to move it. I will, however, add a "See Also" section. For now, only the "Law Dictionary" page will be included, but I would appreciate it if others would help expand it. 15:09, 20 June 2006 (UTC)


Black's Law Dictionary is now available in a software format. -- Toytoy 19:34, 26 January 2007 (UTC)


Shouldnt we put how it was founded as a hoax? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 03:19, 24 April 2008 (UTC)

According to this contemporaneous UseNet post, the hoax claim in 2003 is a hoax: —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:26, 24 April 2008 (UTC)

To Which Juristictions Does Black's Law Dictionary Apply?[edit]

Is BLD only relevant to the United States of America (the only country currently mentioned in the article) or do the definitions contained within also apply in other countries? Some idea of scope would put the dictionary's relevance around the world into better context as it is currently unclear. (talk) 17:26, 21 November 2009 (UTC)
