MS Word Tips and Tricks for Legal Professionals

Legal offices have specific challenges with their documents using Microsoft Word, especially if they have transitioned from WordPerfect. There is a reason for this; the two programs are engineered very differently. Having a basic understanding of these differences will clarify many of the mysteries around Word. There are also challenges of creating legal documents in a hurry with required style settings. This webinar will offer solutions to these issues and others that are drawn from common support calls and requested training topics.

This webinar with expert speaker Mitzi Gibson Katz was written for people using Microsoft Word to create and format professional documents in a time crunch. If you're someone who has said that "I was an expert in WordPerfect and now I am barely getting by using Word," this session is the perfect one for you.
