Microsoft Word for Lawyers

You spend a lot of time in front of a computer, and if you’re not sending emails, you’re probably using Microsoft Word to create and edit documents. Whether you’re a transactional lawyer or litigator, you rely heavily on form documents and templates – for agreements, affidavits, pleadings, even letters. But what happens when these documents aren’t formatted properly? You get disappearing text, visual confusion, errors, and more. So you spend minutes, maybe even hours, trying to “clean up” whatever you’ve created or are editing. Stop wasting your time! Attend this refreshed 90 minute webinar with legal technology trainer Craig Brody and learn the basics of Microsoft Word that every lawyer – especially small firm lawyers who don’t have the luxury of support staff – must know! Using simple, easy to understand on-screen examples, Craig will show you how to use basic Word commands to select fonts, format paragraphs, use indent and tabs, set margins, apply styles, add automatic paragraph numbering, insert and format page numbering, add section breaks, and inset cross-references, footnotes and links. Plus, you’ll learn how to review, track, accept and reject changes, and compare documents. Sign up today and learn how to make the best use of Microsoft Word when drafting legal instruments. Your documents will work better for you, and you’ll be more productive. This webinar assumes basic familiarity with Microsoft Word. Commands taught will apply to Microsoft Word versions 2010, 2013, 2016, and Office 365. Registrants will receive a quick reference guide with electronic templates and practice exercises as part of the course materials.

Live webinar with chat includes 60 day replay. This program features real-time audio of the presenter with synchronized presentation slides, and a chat feature that allows for live Q & A.
