What A Lawyer Needs to Know about PDF Files (3.0 credits)
You have probably noticed that PDF files are everywhere. They have become the file format of choice when trading documents with other lawyers and clients. Many courts now require that all pleadings be filed as PDFs; and most governmental forms are available exclusively in PDF format. In this seminar, you’ll learn appropriate uses of PDFs, and we’ll cover metadata removal and electronic document security, redaction, Bates Numbering, splitting/combining PDFs, reducing file-size for electronic case filing, review/comment and PDF collaboration, adding signatures and stamps, routing PDFs for comments/feedback, and more. Finally, we’ll identify the programs you can use for all of these functions (there are many inexpensive alternatives Adobe Acrobat).
