The Droit Adminsitratif blog publishes every two month a very handy compilation of new French language titles called “Revue bibliographique.” The revue includes cover images, summaries, and table of contents. Book includes various legal topics, not just administrative law. Highly recommended for collection management and acquisition librarians. The blog also has an interesting “droit et cinema” category.
Speaking of bilingual information… In the latest issue of Law Library Journal, Dennis Kim Prieto of Rutgers Law Library offers a timely and useful article on bilingual English-Spanish dictionaries. He reviews the latest lexicographic research to undercover criteria by which to assess bilingual legal dictionaries. The annotated bibliography at the end of the article will prove useful to acquisitions librarians as they make decisions about which dictionaries to buy. Dennis’ article is a welcome addition to the understudied area of legal lexicography, especially in foreign languages.
