All-New Precedent Bank on the LESA Library

Did you know that the LESA Library is home to nearly 1,000 precedents, checklists, and documents? Introducing the all-new Precedent Bank available only on the LESA Library.

Precedents, Checklists, and Documents

As a complete LESA Library subscriber, you can access nearly 1,000 precedents, checklists, and documents as part of your annual subscription. Previously, these resources were included as appendices to papers and publications, making them a bit harder to find in search results. Now, these documents are also available as their own separate files (primarily in Word) and categorized by area of law.

   All precedents, checklists, and documents will include this icon beside the title, giving a visual cue to help you find what you are looking for.

Subscribers of one or two areas of law have access to precedents categorized by the area(s) of law to which they are subscribed. If you are interested in upgrading your subscription to the complete LESA Library, feel free to send us a note at [email protected].

Searching for Precedents

There are multiple ways that subscribers can search and filter for precedents:

  1. Select your chosen area of law in the “Precedents” drop-down menu in the top right corner. You will then see a complete list of all available precedents within that area, organized by sub-categories.
  2. You can also use the filter menu on the left-hand side to find precedents. Check off the “precedent” box to narrow your results to only show precedents. Enter a key term, or filter by area of law, to further narrow down your search results.
