    Word for Law Office (Word 2002)

    Is there a resource out there where special Word add-ins for Law Offices are available? I'm particularly looking for legal templates for briefs, custom law dictionary, alternate ways to create a Table of Authorities (Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana courts need something quite different from Microsoft's un-customizable default).

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Craig.

    Please let me know of any you find so that I can add them to my Word download page (addbalance.com/word/download/index.htm).

    You may want to check the third party vendors list in the Intermediate Users Guide (see signature block) for free downloads as well. To my mind a real find is Bill Coan's Boilerplate Add-In.

    Edited: <!t><!/t> and <!t><!/t> tags added at either end of the URL to make the link live -Mod.

    You may want to check out Microsoft's documentation on using Word in a law office:
    http://office.microsoft.com/download.../wdLegalG.aspx
    I don't think it includes plug-ins, but there's a lot of useful info.

    Good luck. Joel

    There are, of course, companies devoted to legal pleadings. The main ones are Legal MacPac and Softwise.

    You could check out their websites at www.legalmacpac.com and www.softwise.net.

    Hope this helps.

    For doing a Table of Authorities, the best product I have ever seen is Full Authority. In addition to generating a TOA in just a few seconds without marking text in the document, it can also show the user if there is incorrect punctuation, underlining, or abbreviations. http://www.lexisnexis.com/fullauthority/

    I haven't used this in years but it was an excellent product when I did use it.
