Does a DEFAULT legal process workflow exist??

Jira Core's sales pages advertise that Jira can be used for legal processes and the page even shows a basic review/approve process... but I don't see it when I go to Settings >> Workflows. 

In fact, I don't see ANY default processes to load other than the basic To Do, In Progress, Done.

That doesn't make any sense. In Confluence, if I click CREATE I can choose from all sorts of templates. Where are all the "default workflows" to choose from in Jira????

The workflow for a project is built as you create the project, you don't choose from a list.  You select the project type and that will create the workflow for you.  The workflow that gets built is determined by the project type you selected.

Got it. I thought it'd say "legal workflow" or something, but it was actually the "document workflow". Had I read the page on legal workflows a little more closely, I would have seen that. My bad! Thanks for the answer. :) 

I see no fault here - it's not exactly clear that "document workflow" is mostly what Atlassian would expect a "legal" organisation to look for.  They're at a size where they need to be quite generic to keep their broad appeal, but that makes it harder for people with specific requirements (or niches) to find the right option.
