Legal_Brief_Using_LaTeX

This is a LaTeX template file (LegalBrief.tex) for generating legal briefs, with the line numbering and formatting commonly used by lawyers in the United States.

This template uses LaTeX's Wallpaper package, incorporating the line numbers and borders from a separate PDF file (which was also generated using LaTeX). Make sure to place the file BriefBkgd.pdf in the same folder as your working template.

To satisfy court-specific formatting requirements, you can edit the dimensions in the brief paper template file BriefBkgd.tex and generate a brand new BriefBkgd.pdf file. However, after making such changes, you may have to alter the borders and line spacing in LegalBrief.tex accordingly.

The PDF Legal_Brief_Using_LaTeX.pdf demonstrates the output and includes additional directions on use. The template file LegalBrief.tex also contains detailed comments.
