My White Horse Case Book Now in Its 3rd Edition! Happy Day!!

How many times have we seen students spinning their wheels online seeking that illusive “white horse case?”

Don’t know what a white horse case is (I’m showing my age here)?  Then look it up in Garner’s Dictionary of Legal Usage, one of my most favorite reference books.  I love this book and I read it for fun and find many definitions — besides “white horse case” (and this is the only book I’ve found which offers a good definition of the phrase) —  to share with my students, so I was delighted to see that this book is now out in its third edition; from the Oxford University Press Law Newsletter:

Bryan A. Garner reaffirms his position as the foremost expert of legal usage and style with the Third Edition of his Dictionary of Legal Usage. This month, be among the first to own this revamped and expanded new edition with more than 800 new entries.
Garner’s Dictionary of Legal Usage
Third Edition
Bryan A. Garner

This new edition discusses and analyzes modern legal vocabulary and style more thoroughly than any other contemporary reference work.

I can’t wait to start pouring over those 800 new entries.  Talk about poolside summer reading!
