Published by the American Bar Association (ABA), Lay Words for Lawyers is a must-have for lawyers as well wordsmits, providing verbal "ammunition" for the legal practitioner.

The key words and analogies featured in the book are intended to elicit strong mental – but particularly strong emotional – images or memories in the hearer. They stimulate in the listener a flood of associations with these words in order to effectively communicate with clients, witnesses, and jurors. Each category highlights words that may be unfamiliar to the lawyer and then provides definitions on meanings and examples of common usage.

The book is divided into nine sections:

  • Computer terminology
  • Words and phrases by birth year (Matures, Boomers, Generation X, Generation Y, Millenials)
  • Pan-generational words and phrases
  • Literary references
  • Sports terminology
