Checklists Law and Legal Definition

A checklist is a list of items to be noted, checked, or remembered. A checklist is a simple yet powerful task management tool that helps you plan projects, prioritize 'to do' items, remember responsibilities and record accomplishments. It is an organizational tool which is helpful not only in ensuring thorough preparation, but may be used to save time and money in seeking the assistance of professional help. For example, a divorce checklist of assets which is prepared by a client can save the client hundreds of dollars in an attorney's billed time.
