Transactional Drafting

A guide to transactional drafting resources at SLU Law

How to Find Subject-Specific Forms and Drafting Guidance

The print and electronic resources shown under the subject-specific headings on this guide represent only a small portion of what is available.  To find the greatest number of forms and drafting guidance resources in a given subject area, search by topic on Westlaw, Lexis, or Bloomberg.  Also note that the major treatises in a given subject area also typically have forms, even if the word "forms" isn't in the title. 

  • In WestlawNext, select "Forms" from the home screen and then select the topic in which you are interested.  At that point, you can search across all forms in that subject area by entering search terms in the search bar.  Alternatively, you can narrow further by state or publication before running your search.
  • In Lexis Advance, select "Forms" under the "Category" tab under "Filter" as well as your desired practice area under the Practice Areas & Topics tab.  Enter your search terms in the search bar.
  • In Bloomberg, select the Transactional Law tab and then select Transactional Resources.  Drafting Tools & Precedents appears at the top of the page, and you can search or browse through their extensive database of forms, narrowing by subject after you select your desired source.
