Legal Tech Skills Certificate (Microsoft Word)

The six-week Legal Tech Skills Certificate will teach lawyers, paralegals, and legal support personnel the essential skills needed to use the programs law firms already use daily - Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook, and Adobe Acrobat.

These courses will train participants on how to:

    • properly create, format, index, hyperlink and bookmark documents including wills, contracts, pleadings, motion papers and trial memoranda;

    • more efficiently, effectively and securely use email;

    • redact, OCR, and Bates stamp documents;

    • comply with certain e-filing requirements; and

    • manipulate and work with spreadsheets and presentations to improve the services they offer to their clients.

Each course includes one virtual 2-hour live session, step-by-step recorded instructions for completing key tasks, and a tip sheet for each program. 


Registrants can sign up for individual classes or for all six. Classes are held via Zoom.

$199 per course. $995 if participants register for all six courses together.

Each course qualifies for 2.0 CLE credits in Law Practice Management, and participants will receive a certificate for completing all six classes.
