Updates to Gale LegalForms Announced

Gale, part of Cengage Learning, announced new updates to Gale LegalForms, its online legal resource designed to help public library patrons, law students, and practicing lawyers create accurate and reliable legal documents. All LegalForms products now include the Law Digest module, which contains law summaries for each state as well as a detailed, yet easy-to-understand, legal question and answer (Q&A) section. Enhancements have also been made to the user interface, making the resource easier to navigate.

Gale LegalForms offers an easy-to-use, state-by-state and step-by-step approach to addressing basic legal matters, such as developing a will, conducting real estate transactions including rental or lease agreements, and more. Users have access to thousands of customizable online legal documents that are available anytime from any place. Many of the forms can be used across all 50 states, while the resource also includes forms unique to each particular state. Coupled with the straightforward interface, users avoid hours of research often required to develop legal documents. Users can simply locate the appropriate form that’s needed by using the homepage links, download the form and plug in their information. Gale LegalForms is a vastly different service than other online legal products—it offers a well-organized collection of forms actually used in legal practices, not just outlines or templates of forms, and allows users to edit the forms as they need.

Gale LegalForms now also includes a Law Digest module, which contains access to a collection of case law summaries for all 50 states that are ideal for research. Within each Law Digest entry, users can find additional resources, including government organizations and their contact information, a bibliography for further research, and links to related subjects. The Legal Q&A section houses a collection of real attorney-provided legal answers to questions from everyday people. In addition, updates have been made to the interface to create a clean, more-streamlined appearance, and allow for quick access to the most important content from the home page (without scrolling), and stronger search functions for overall easier site navigation.

These additional resources and enhancements have been given to current LegalForms customers at no additional cost.
