The introduction to the book (in fact, of the 23th edition, which I found by chance) indicates that the book is intended mainly for law students, and that it was born from the diversification of profiles of people interested in this social activity. It is a book that aims to clarify the vocabulary of the discipline and to disseminate the legal standard. But is this lexicon made by lexicographers? Well, no, it is the product of law professors and professionals from different areas of law. The definitions refer to legal codes rather than examples taken from a corpus, and there is no information on how to use terms in a sentence, nor their grammatical categories. However, the definitions are precise and clear even for the layperson of the field that I am.
