Words and Phrases Legally Defined is a law dictionary. It contains statutory and judicial definitions of words and phrases. It is one of the two "major" dictionaries of its type (the other being Stroud's). Both dictionaries have entries not contained in the other.[1] This dictionary is "useful".[2]

The Second Edition was edited by John B Saunders and published by Butterworths in five volumes from 1969 to 1970.
