How To: Create a Reusable Filing Template

Starting from scratch every time you create a document is time consuming and painful. Simply replacing one client’s information with another’s to save time is risky and leaves lots of room for error. The solution? Create a template! By taking a relatively small amount of time to create a well-formatted document template, you’ll have a clean, attractive starting point every time you need to file something with the courts. 

Learning Objectives:

Why you shouldn’t start from scratch with every individual document, or rely on the risky practice of updating an old document to reflect new information
How to save a document as a template instead of a normal Word document, and what capability this unlocks
How to apply simple but hugely effective formatting to keep your template clean and attractive
