Knowing where to buy legal templates online can be tough. Google any kind of contract, agreement or other legal template and you’ll be presented with a raft of legal templates (both paid and free).
The problem with agreement templates is that they are just that – a template! Lawyers spend years learning and training how to read, draft and adapt templates so that they are usable for their clients (and their client’s specific needs, goals and risks).
This article explains where you can buy legal templates online.

So, when platforms offer free agreement templates, there is a temptation to use the agreement templates and just “fill in the gaps”.
But that approach ignores the circumstances surrounding the agreement, who the parties are, and what they are trying to achieve (and avoid!). Free agreement templates should be used in conjunction with quality legal advice, otherwise, you may run the risk of the agreement template not being worth the paper it is written on.
Purchasing legal templates online
Underneath here, you’d find a few Australian legal platforms where you can obtain paid and free legal templates online for your usage.
Getting legal templates on Lawpath
Lawpath is an online legal service that offers legal templates. The website is run by a legal start-up that provides users with online access to various forms and documents, including wills and estate planning documents.
The company was founded in 2011 by Matt Leibowitz and James Paton, who wanted to provide Australians with access to the same quality of services offered by their counterparts in the United States and Europe. By cutting out middlemen such as large law firms or accountants, Lawpath could offer customers high-quality legal advice at affordable prices.
