Who Should Attend

This program will benefit lawyers and other legal professionals who want to learn how to use Microsoft Excel to improve their work product and efficiency.

About the Program

If you have any version of Microsoft Office, then you already have Microsoft Excel. But most lawyers either underutilize or don’t use Excel. Stop wasting this powerful tool! Excel is a versatile, convenient software program that can make you more efficient and organized in your daily law practice. It can help you log billable hours, track expenses, calculate interest on judgments, manage client information, keep an eye on cases, create template forms, and produce charts and other graphical representations of data. Start making your life easier by attending this new, 90 minute webinar with technology trainer and Excel expert Craig Brody. Using legal-related spreadsheet examples, Mr. Brody will teach you how to:

  • Design spreadsheets; move, copy, and format data
  • Insert and copy formulas to track costs and case details
  • Sort and filter large lists of data, including client information
  • Create charts to illustrate data and results
  • Create template forms
  • Use page layout commands to set up for printing
  • Use shortcuts to save time

You’ll learn how having Excel skills can be an important advantage for today’s legal professional. No previous Excel knowledge is required. Commands taught will apply to software versions 2010, 2013 and 2016 for PC, and version 2016 for MAC. Registrants will receive a quick reference guide with practice exercises as part of the course materials.
