Using Microsoft Word to Overcome Documentation Challenges in Your Legal Office.

Legal offices have specific challenges with their documents using Microsoft Word, especially if they have transitioned from WordPerfect. The reason behind it is that these two programs are engineered very differently. Many of the mysteries around Word would get clarified if you have the basic understanding of these differences. There are also hurdles in creating legal documents in a hurry with required style settings.

In this session, expert speaker Mitzi Gibson Katz will offer solutions to issues involving the use of Microsoft Word and documentation challenges in the legal office.  The topics and issues discussed in this webinar are drawn from common support calls and Mitzi’s training experience in this area. This session is useful for people who use Microsoft Word to create and format professional documents in a time crunch.
