Having access to reliable legal research tools and current, accurate forms from trusted sources is an important component of effective and efficient legal drafting. Adapting documents for accuracy and proper formatting is just as critical. This CLE program will guide attendees in using three of the most popular legal databases-- Westlaw, Lexis, and O’Connor’s -- to locate legal forms.

In the second part of the program, the presenters will edit one of the forms found in one of the three legal research databases to demonstrate the use of various formatting features in Microsoft Word. Attendees will have an opportunity for individual hands-on participation. They will work along with the presenters to apply the formatting tools being demonstrated and have a chance to ask questions about specific formatting functions.
