Thursday's Tome

No matter what area of law you practice, you will inevitably need numerous forms.  These forms can be difficult to understand at times, and there is no need to reinvent the wheel when you can simply modify a pre-existing one to suit your particular case.

To that end, there are numerous sources for forms.  I'm going to list off a few of my favorites that we have here in the library in book format.

Am Jur Legal Forms 2d
"This comprehensive set of American Jurisprudence legal forms allows clear, accurate, and informed application of more than 22,000 legal documents. Arranged alphabetically, each title contains form drafting guides, notes on use, and copious sample forms. Includes a separate Federal Tax Guide to Legal Forms, covering pertinent tax law, which is cross-referenced to the volumes of forms. Provides text discussions, checklists, finding aids, chapter outlines, commentary, practice aids, and a detailed index to the entire set."

"This multivolume library of transactional forms covers more than 230 topics of law, such as contracts, deeds, wills, trusts, articles of incorporation, and merger agreements. Includes all the forms, checklists, questionnaires, and tax information needed to facilitate a transaction or relationship between parties. (It does not contain litigation or pleadings forms filed with courts in the context of legal proceedings.) Each subject area contains overviews of topics arranged alphabetically throughout the volumes, tax implications, drafting checklists, and references to other publications. Includes state-specific statutes to help locate provisions and phrasing needed to comply with a state’s particular requirements."
