As a practical research and drafting tool Kelly's Legal Precedents (previously known as Kelly's Draftsman) is unrivalled, providing a unique collection of the main forms and precedents practitioners are likely to need in their day-to-day practice.

It is a practical research and drafting tool and covers a broad range of subjects in depth. The accompanying CD-ROM allows completion of the precedents on screen and it uses clear, straightforward language and document construction.

Using the CD, it is simple to locate the material you require, either by entering a precedent or clause number or by navigating through the contents tree. At the click of a mouse button the CD enables you to find the precedent needed, print it out or copy it to a WP document and customise it to your precise requirements - all in a fraction of the time it could otherwise take. The result is an increase in productivity and an improvement to the quality of the finished product.
