How To…Learn the Basics of MS Word 2016 (2/22/24)

Lawyers need to have a working knowledge of Microsoft Word 2016. In this program, we’ll look at the basics of what the program has to offer. This will be an introduction to the platform, with a focus on several of its sophisticated formatting tools that can help you create polished, well-formatted versions of the documents you use regularly (engagement letters, retainers, non-engagement letters, etc.). In this class, we’ll explore why utilizing these formatting tools creates stronger documents than doing things manually might. NOTE: This class is ideal for Office 2016 users, but other version users are still welcome. Word for Mac users are welcome as well!
