Microsoft Word is one of the most critical pieces of a legal professional's toolkit. Understanding the overall layout of Word, different toolbars, and managing file versions is a great start to getting the most out of one of today's most popular office programs.

In this session we will cover:
  • Toolbars & Menus
  • Creating a new document
  • Formatting a document: Margins, Headers, Footers & Pagination
  • Formatting text: Fonts, Spacing, Paragraphs
  • Moving text: Block, Move & Copy
  • Searching within a document; Find & Replace
  • Grammar & Spellcheck Tools
  • Saving documents: Save, Save As, Save to PDF
  • Printing options

Microsoft Word 2013 will be used in the training (although the functionality and interface are primarily the same in the 2007 and 2010 versions), and a wifi connection will be available.

This will be a hands' on session. Attendees are encouraged to bring their laptops.
