Information

A pre-recorded streaming VIDEO replay of one session from the September 2017 live seminar, How to Maximize Legal Technology in Your Office: Practicing Efficiently and Ethically.


In law school, they taught you the law, how to conduct research, and the ethics rules of our profession. However, they probably failed to teach you how to use the primary tool necessary to produce work product—Microsoft Word. Law schools are now scrambling to add practical technical skills to their offerings, but most of us never had the opportunity. Further, the days of dedicated support staff to handle those things has unfortunately passed. Lawyers have to understand how to use all of the tools, and mastering Word means faster turn-around, higher drafting accuracy, and better client service. Unfortunately, Microsoft Word is complicated, and the formatting required in legal documents is almost always complex. Adding a new article to a contract shouldn’t mean you have to waste two hours manually updating all of the subsequent paragraph numbers and cross-references which are now incorrect because of your addition. Getting a document to look the way you want shouldn’t be the most frustrating part of your day. In this session, you’ll learn the right way to set up complex legal documents and how to avoid the problems and delays you’re used to encountering.
