Exercise Extreme Caution when using many of our free forms - or any legal material. While they may provide general ideas on format & content, validity requirements can and do vary greatly from state to state. Many MUST be Properly Modified for your own location and circumstances. (Hint: If in doubt it's usually safer to include unneeded clauses than to leave out necessary ones. . . . but it's even safer to consult a competent source or use current, state specific ones like ours mentioned below.) Also, we urge people (and lawyers too) to read our Relying On Legal Info FAQ.
This room's devoted to material specifically for the brave souls and unsung heroes whose lot in life is to labor in the legal professions. We hope it conveys the admiration and gratitude we feel, and only wish we could do more to honor your constant, and all-too-often ignored, struggle to help all humanity... so enjoy. And afterwards, be sure to check out the specialized Reading Rooms for Judges, Lawyers, Expert Witnesses & Consultants, and Para-Pros you'll find below... and the rest of the Library too.
FIRST, HERE'S SOMETHING A LITTLE ... DIFFERENT
Think your life as a respected legal professional sucks? Well, if these first few items don't make you feel better -- after all, you could be in a courtroom with these folks -- then maybe it IS time to run away and join the circus.
Freeman Michael's 'Memorandum of Law'that "will support all our writs, pleadings, presentments of any manner whatsoever as being true, correct and certain; and James 5:12 and Matthew 5:33-37"??
* For other documents from these cases, and more conventional ones, see the Library's Newsroom
Because of our respect for all legal professionals - but mostly to keep you litigious lunatics so occupied that you won't have the time to sue us - we've made sure there's lots of other Library features & places that you're certain to find interesting -- like the Reference Room's Civil Law, Constitutional Decisions, Litigation and Law & Medicine Topic Areas as well as our Forms Room with lots of practice related & other forms and Bookstore with free & shareware law related software -- so loosen your tie (or non-sexist equivalent), walk around, explore, enjoy yourself, and try to ignore any pro se you notice... until you can get them into a courtroom. Heh, heh, heh.
