Are you “practice ready” when it comes to technology?
“Practice ready” has become a buzz word in the legal world. Law firms can no longer afford to train new associates, so they are looking for applicants who have the skills to start serving clients on day one.
The Law Library can help you develop your technology skills. The videos in this guide give step-by-step instructions on how to use advanced features in Word to speed up and simplify the process of creating and editing legal documents. Learn how to create tables of contents and authorities, manage contract provisions with multi-level lists, control your metadata, and more.
This guide is broken into seven videos of 4-12 minutes each. The videos are numbered, but you can watch them in any order.
Sometimes a video is not enough. If you have a question about Microsoft Word or want a live person to take you through one of the tools used in this guide, stop by the Law Library. The librarians are happy to share their knowledge.
