Word Power Tips for Legal Users

Grand MN

In the modern practice of law, most lawyers necessarily handle some or all of their own word processing. Younger lawyers have always typed their own documents; and older lawyers are increasingly looking to become self-reliant in that regard. Further, many small firms cannot cost-justify hiring word processing support staff; and medium and larger firms often have one support staff person supporting anywhere from 3 to 7 lawyers (which means that lawyers have to get in line and wait if they need help). However, due to the complex formatting often required with legal documents, legal users find Microsoft Word to be a constant source of irritation. It’s the primary tool used to produce work product, yet many feel it works against them. Using Word and “clicking around” provides little improvement and no insight. This seminar is designed to specifically address these realities. We’ll show you exactly how to fix the common legal drafting problems plaguing you now and avoid them in the future. You’ll learn dozens of tips and techniques you can put into practice immediately. Even if you think you already know Word well, you will likely learn new things the entire time!
