Law Student Necessity

As a pre-law student I can say this app is an absolute necessity. It makes it so much simpler to learn and understand legal terms, making it much easier to keep up with my professors and readings during class. Having clear, accurate definitions specifically in legal terms at your fingertips is an amazing asset for students. Keep up the amazing work!

Excellent application

This is one of the instances that you need a great app to depend on. I’m glad the creators took the time to address this matter in such a mystic way in order to bring some understanding in such a complex task. Thank you for all you do and keep up the good work.
