Lawyers, judges, and law students have come to rely on DMLU, as have many who confront the language of the law in related fields, including journalism, business, and finance. Described in the Harvard Law Review as 'a work worthy of comparison to H. W. Fowler's Dictionary of Modern English Usage, ' DMLU has become on indispensable reference
