Common Form is a computer language for legal forms. That language helps software process not just legal text, but the sections, references, definitions, and blanks that give it structure. Programs that speak Common Form can solve problems word processors and document assemblers can’t.

Common Form tools are licensed, free of charge, on highly permissive, professionally drafted open-source terms. The code is divided into neat building blocks that are easy to reuse in other projects.

Common Form is under active development. If you’d like to connect, e-mail and ask to join the mailing list. Most work happens by e-mail and on GitHub.
