How do I find precedents on a specific topic?

  1. Open the Forms & Precedents search form.
  2. Select the appropriate source from the Sources drop-down list. It will default to All Subscribed Forms & Precedents Sources, but you may wish to use a smaller source, such as Encyclopaedia of Forms and Precedents.
  3. In Search terms, enter key words surrounding the topic of law that you are interested in. For example, if you are looking for precedents to do with the sale of a ship by a mortgagee, you could enter sale AND ship AND mortgagee to retrieve suitable results.
  4. Click on Search to retrieve your results.
