In today’s world legal professionals regularly use forms to assist in the creation of documents. Legal forms can be found on most court’s website, on the Internet, and on most legal database websites such as Lexisnexis. Forms are also available on commercial websites to help laymen create their own legal documents. Forms are very useful but do present the drafter with problems, especially with the advent of “cut and paste.”
In your initial discussion post this week list at least three benefits and three problems that you, as a paralegal, should be aware of when using a form. For each benefit or problem listed explain why you listed it. Finally give an example of a personal experience when you used a form and what you learned.
