How do I find the definition of a legal term?

  1. Open the Commentary search form.
  2. Select the appropriate source from the Sources drop-down list. It will default to All Subscribed Commentary Sources, but you may wish to use a smaller source, such as Halsbury's Laws of England.
  3. In Search terms, enter the word or phrase you require a definition for, followed by W/15 (mean! or defin! or interpret!). For example, to find the definition of a shadow director, type shadow director W/15 (mean! OR defin! OR interpret!).
  4. Click on Search to retrieve your results.
