Hi,

does anyone know a good on-line source for the layout of legal documents/contracts. I need something that shows the correct way (and terminology) to set out and number different sections, etc.

thanks

Google it Aug 21, 2007

For English, I usually do a Google search for "sample contract" and another key word (employment, lease, etc. depending on the type of contract). This usually turns up many examples.

Here is another source of free sample contracts in English:

thanks.. Aug 21, 2007

This is a great link, Daina.

I have tried this but only ever found sites offering sample template-type documents or just specifying what information the document should contain.

This is great because it shows you the whole document.

Thanks again.

Paty

Jurisdictional differences Aug 25, 2007

Most jurisdictions have their own preferred layout.

My law firm, for example, encourages us to use the same numbering as the Queensland parliament.

And a law librarian may be able to point you to books of precedents in certain areas of law (most are available in databases now, but I don't know if they are free).
