Mastering Microsoft Word in the Law Office

Mastering Microsoft Word in the Law Office
In law school, they taught you the law, how to conduct research and 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.  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 a very complicated program; and controlling complex formatting is a wrestling match many lawyers lose repeatedly.  Adding a new article to a contract shouldn't mean you have to waste 2 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 seminar, you'll learn the right way to set up complex legal documents and how to avoid the formatting problems and delays you're probably used to encountering.

Attendees of this program are encouraged to bring a laptop or Mac to this program.  Templates will be available for formatting examples.  In addition to receiving this hands-on education, attendees will receive one free week of technical support which commences the day following the program.
