We may have just the information you’re looking for in Westlaw or Legal Forms online.

 General directions

  • Go to myEPL.org
  • Select Online Resources under FEATURED LINKS:

Legal Forms

  • Forms are downloadable and printable; some may be filled out online, then printed or saved
  • Arranged by category, as well as an A-Z list
  • Includes legal DEFINITIONS, LAW DIGEST, LEGAL Q & A, and an Attorney Directory

Legal Forms are accessible from anywhere that has an Internet connection (with an Elkhart Public Library card in good standing) or from any EPL location (no library card required).

 

Westlaw

Find the legal information you are looking for quickly and confidently!

  • Plain English search feature
