How to Read, Edit, Print and Download Free Legal Documents

Home > Free Legal Documents

Drafting of legal documents is not much about the one who drafts them, but more for the one who receives them. The starting point of any free legal documents is that they need to address the recipient. If you are a lawyer, you are not writing for your boss, your university, or for your ego. You are writing for your client, colleague, opponent, judge, or even journal readers. They all have different experiences and perspectives. So, when you are crafting free legal documents, you need to take two things in consideration. The first one is to find the best template, and the second is to find great PDF software to edit the legal documents.

Part 1Best Software to Manage Free Legal Documents

We will discuss what is a good legal document, and how to find the best free legal documents. But for now, we need to address the PDF software you need to create and edit legal documents. The software in question is Wondershare PDFelement, a tool with a robust set of features you can use. Here are some of them:

  • Read PDF documents with ease on any of your devices
  • Convert any format into a readable, editable, and searchable PDF document
  • Edit text, images, links, and much more in any PDF document
  • Protect your sensitive legal documents with redaction tool
  • Print PDF documents and compress the size of any document to fit the free legal documents dimensions

Part 2 How to Read, Edit and Print Free Legal Documents

When you need to prepare a PDF document that is legal, you need to read it first, edit, and print it. Here is how you can do that with PDFelement.

Step 1: How to Read Free Legal Documents

In order to read free legal documents, you need to open them. There are different ways to open and read free legal documents. The first one is to open the PDFelement, and then drag and drop a PDF file into it. The second way is to click "Open", browse and find the PDF file, and then open it. You can also click "Open" > "Open Recent Files".

Then just click on "View" tab, and there are multiple reading modes you can select. You can choose "Fit Width" "Fit Page" "Single" "Continuous" "Facing" "Facing Continuous" or "Full Screen". Just use the most comfortable mode for your legal documents.

Step 2: How to Edit Free Legal Documents

There are many things you can edit. For example, you can edit text, but you can also edit images. And the latest version of PDFelement includes spell check, allowing you to check if there are spelling mistakes in your text.

If you want to edit the text in the document, click "Edit" > "Edit Text". Click the text you want to edit, type new text, and delete the previous text. There are two ways you can edit text. The first one is "Paragraph mode", marking the whole paragraph, and "Line Mode", marking each line separately.

You can also edit image, and shape of objects. Go to "Edit" > "Edit Object", and click the image or the object you want to edit. A blue box will appear around the object, and you can drag it to move. You can also put the mouse on the edge of the blue box, and resize the image. There are many other options as well.

Step 3: How to Print Free Legal Documents

You can print any PDF document after you finish reading or editing the document. To print a PDF document, you need to follow these instructions. Click "File" > "Print", and then specify the printer you want to use. Aside from specifying the printer, you need to select page range, print mode, and page size. Enter all the parameters, and then click "Print".

Part 3Tips for Downloading Free Legal Documents

When you are looking for free legal documents, it is important to know for who you write/edit those documents for. Not all people are the same, and not all understand the same terms and complexity. Here are some tips.

Luckily for you, there are a number of free legal documents online that you can easily download. When you are looking to download free legal documents, make sure you are downloading from a reliable source. Look for websites that have attorneys preparing their documents. This way, you know that the documents are legally binding, and you know it will take you only few minutes to make the necessary changes.
