Transactional Forms

This guide provides information about where to find forms, sample documents, and related transactional resources, including specific information about Texas resources.

Introduction

Transactional attorneys frequently use forms and examples as guides when drafting legal documents. Forms or examples can be annotated or unannotated. In addition to using model documents, attorneys often reference agreements from real life transactions ("precedent"). These documents allow lawyers to see what various entities actually agreed to and signed. 

You can find transactional forms in database collections that gather together forms or transactional resources. Additionally, you can find relevant forms by searching for form books, practice guides, or treatises on your topic (databases also often include forms from publications in their form collections). Some form books, such as American Jurisprudence Legal Forms 2d and West's Legal Forms, cover a broad range of legal topics. 

This guide provides information about where to find forms, sample documents, and related transactional resources in a number of database collections, as well as where to search for form books, practice guides, and treatises. The guide includes specific information about Texas resources.
