The purpose of this guide is to help users find model forms available at the Maurice A. Deane Law Library, on subscription databases, and on the Internet. This guide is not meant to be comprehensive or exhaustive, but rather a starting point for the user.
Publications containing model forms vary in format and content. Some forms can be found in publications with annotations, checklists, and citations to cases. Others will be found in subject specific publications or more comprehensive works. This guide is broken-up into four categories: Major Sets, Subject Specific Forms, Online Forms, and Internet Access.
Major Sets titles include comprehensive sets such as American Jurisprudence Legal Forms, 2d as well as, Federal practice titles. There is also a link to New York Practice titles.
Subject Specific Forms attempts to aggregate titles that contain legal forms by subject.
Online Forms provide access to forms offered by Lexis, Westlaw, and Maurice A. Deane Law Library subscription databases.
Internet Access provides access to fee-based and free legal forms available on the Internet.
