Library Files - Finding Forms & Precedents

Library Files - Finding Forms & Precedents

Forms and Precedents: What are they and why do I need them?
Precedents are templates of common legal documents. These include legal agreements, court pleadings, court forms, etc., and can save you time from having to create a document from scratch. The library has hundreds of precedents that will fit almost every need. Even if you can’t find just the right document, you can combine two or even three precedents together into one document. If you have trouble finding any of the precedents in the collection, don’t hesitate to ask to ask for help. Here is run down of some of the key Forms & Precedents available in the library or online.

Canadian Forms and Precedents on Quicklaw (in-library shortcut on desktop) contains a large selection of forms and precedents for Canada, covering all major subjects and  areas such as Banking & Finance, Commercial Tenancies, Corporations, Debtor-Creditor, Employment, Information Technology, Intellectual Property, Land Development, Licensing, Municipal Law,  Ontario Court Forms-Williston & Rolls, Sale & Operation of a Business, The Practitioner's Criminal Precedents, 2nd Edition (Gold), Sale, Distribution & Transport of Goods, and Wills & Estates.

e-discovery and e-trial model documents can be located on the OBA website.
AdvoCAT’s Annotated Document Series has a large selection of templates that contain commentary and tips. Many of the titles are found in the library along with the accompanying CD-ROM. If you’re lucky enough to have a CD| DVD drive on your computer you can access the documents in Microsoft Word, Corel WordPerfect, and Rich Text Format.
The Law Society of Upper Canada Access CLE Database contains many forms and precedents. Articles and precedents older than 18 months can be downloaded free of charge.
O'Brien's Encyclopedia of Forms (in-library shortcut on desktop)
Access to O'Brien's is available in the library through the database or in print format. Documents from the database can be downloaded in Word format on to a flash drive for easy editing. The encyclopedia also includes commentary and handy checklists.
Robichaud's Criminal Defence Litigation have a large collection of free forms and precedents which can be printed or saved to your desktop or flash drive.

MMP - Keyboard Tricks

MMP - Keyboard Tricks

We can all use a refresher, even for those of you who are hardcore. I’m offering some keyboard tricks and tips for today’s MMP.

Have you closed a tab accidently? Try pressing CTRL + SHIFT + T or Cdm + SHIFT + T on a Mac to reopen the closed tab.

CTRL + Z will undo a file that’s been deleted or moved and puts it right back to its original location.
The easiest way to Subscript is to highlight a word or letter and hit CTRL and the "+ =" key.

Superscript highlight the word or letter and hit CTRL + Shift and the "+=" key.
Need to view your system information quickly, press the Windows Key + Pause/Break key and a system information panel will open on the screen.

I right click a lot during day, there is a better way. Select anything in a document and press the menu key (it's the key located next to the Windows key). The right click context menu will magically appear on the screen.
Rename a file by pressing F2 when the file is selected.

CTRL + Shift + V will paste the text from any source into plain text (Cdm + Shift + V on a Mac) – no formatting!
