Word 2007 for Law Firms

Duration: 1 Day, 2 Modules
Module Price: $130

This training course helps legal staff use Microsoft Office Word 2007 to prepare pleadings, contracts, estate plans, and other complex documents. Gain efficiency by learning about inserting automatic text, customizing Word 2007, and creating styles and templates. Module 1 will provide step-by-step instructions for working with case captions, inserting a pleading footer, aligning text with pleading line numbers, and setting up a style for indented quotes. Module 2 will cover useful features such as headers and footers, automatic numbering, creating and generating a Table of Contents and a Table of Authorities, tracking changes, and comparing documents. Learn how to use Word 2007's "Document Inspector" metadata removal tool to deal with the issue of sensitive data embedded in Word documents. This course is filled with pragmatic tips, tricks, and time-saving shortcuts. Check for hidden text, comments, and revisions before sending out a legal document. Preparing legal arguments, affidavits, draft pleadings, and motions is just the beginning of a paralegal's job.
