Explore the Legal Information Reference Center
With this handy database, anyone with a legal issue (and a Denver Public Library card) can find the necessary tools and detailed “how-to” instructions to address a wide range of topics including:
- Business law
- Financial planning
- Family law
- Property & real estate
- Rights & disputes
- Intellectual property
You'll find over 13,000 state-specific legal forms and over 310 full-text publications such as Beat Your Ticket: Go to Court & Win, Neighbor Law: Fences, Trees, Boundaries & Noise, and The Criminal Law Handbook: Know Your Rights, Survive the System.
I was thrilled to see all 485 pages of Getting Permission, an invaluable tome that answers, in simple language, copyright and fair use questions pertaining to photographs, art, music, images and trademarks.
You can print out basic forms, such as rental agreements, wills and patents, and you can also access checklists for starting a small business, filing for bankruptcy or carrying out executor duties.
DPL cardholders also have access to Gale Legal Forms, downloadable, printable forms that comply with the laws of Colorado, as well as Legal Trac, an index to articles in major law reviews and journals, legal newspapers, federal and state cases, and laws and regulations.
All of these have apps available for iphone and Android.
