How to Use the Formbank

What’s Included

The Formbank contains lawyer-drafted forms in Microsoft Word format with commentary (explanation). You can search the forms, browse a list of forms by practice area, or see a list of what's new. When you find a form, you can view it online and save (download) it to your computer.

"Last Reviewed" and "Last Updated"

The Last reviewed date indicates the last date on which the form was reviewed for currency. If forms are changed and updated, we add a Last updated date as well, so that you can tell which forms have changed.

Search and Browse

To search, enter your search terms in the search box. To search for a phrase, put the words in quotation marks. If you enter a contributor’s name as a search term, you will find the forms contributed by that person. Results will appear in order of relevance.

If you don't find the form you are looking for using particular search terms, first check to make sure you typed the terms correctly and then try using a synonym. For more advice on searching, see Search Tips.

You can also browse (see a list of) forms by practice area and topic:

  1. Under RESOURCE TYPE, click on Formbank.
  2. Under BROWSE BY PRACTICE AREA, click on a practice area.
  3. This will take you to a list of topics in that practice area. Click on a topic to see a list of forms.
  4. The CONTENTS list shows all the subtopics for that topic and allows you to go directly to a subtopic.
  5. To preview a particular form, click on the title.
