How To…Improve Document Creation Workflows—And Why It Matters (6/10/2021)

Today 39 states require that all lawyers maintain an awareness of the benefits and risks of technology in their law practices. One area where lawyers use technology the most—but rarely consider the risks or opportunities—is document creation.

In this program, we’ll discuss the duty of technology competence and bring it into the real world with a focus on MS Word in legal practice. We’ll take a deep dive into document-creation work and explore options for working more effectively and efficiently. To guide our discussion, we’ll draw from the ongoing work of a collaboration of legal professionals called the “Effectiveness Project,” which seeks to provide lawyers a clear framework for document creation.

Join Ivy B. Grey and Colin S. Levy from WordRake as they explain the “Effectiveness Project” and the importance of technology competence.
