Selected Guide to Legal Forms: General Resources

A selective listing of Louisiana and federal forms.

Introduction

This guide provides law students and practioners with a variety of legal forms in print and online.

Legal forms are designed as a labor-saving device for lawyers. It's important to remember that forms are written in response to the requirements of the law in a specific transactional, jurisdictional, or procedural setting. Be sure to always check to see that the form complies with all of the requirements of the jurisdiction in which you are practicing. 

This guide has been prepared for general information purposes only; it is not legal advice. Legal advice depends on the specific facts of each situation. The information in this web site cannot replace the advice of competent legal counsel licensed in your state.
