Using Online Legal Dictionaries

Many legal dictionaries are available on the Internet:Dictionary

Before citing a legal dictionary to a court, search that court’s recent decisions to identify which dictionaries the court has cited.  If a judge has a strong preference, it will show up in a computer search for the judge and dictionary, and you can then use that knowledge to your advantage.
