I recently drafted a non-disclosure agreement in TeX using the document class article. I liked doing this a lot and I intend to continue doing my legal paperwork in TeX.

Do document classes or packages exist specifically for writing U.S. legal documents?

Of course, I can continue to write them as articles, but if tools have already been created to do this, I'd like to take advantage of them.

This comes up every so often. The big problem is the bluebook citation style. Closest thing to it is which is moribund. – WillAdams Jul 6 '13 at 19:31
@WillAdams Thanks- I did see the related thread about legal citations. Is there something I should use which does everything but citations? – Alexander Gruber Jul 6 '13 at 19:41
Check in if any of those packages, mostly for German lawyers, could be useful your you (directly or maybe as prototypes of your own macros). – Fran Jul 6 '13 at 19:57
Can you give any pointers on how a legal document looks like? How much effort do you have to do to modify standard article. If it is a lot, you could share your mods, robustify them a bit and place it on CTAN. After that, you can place an answer below saying »Yes, there is«. ;-) – Johannes_B Jan 18 at 19:43
@LimitedAtonement Thanks, I'll check it out. – Alexander Gruber May 29 at 18:07
