Using Excel for a simulation exercise in a law office technology course

Simulations can run the gamut from paper based to full online environment. What if you want a "what-if" scenario, but don't see the need to invest in an interactive environment? Excel can serve as a great intermediary solution. In this session I will introduce the simulation my co-instructor and I have used in our Introduction to Law Office Technology seminar. I will discuss how it was made and describe our experiences, both good and bad. Audience members will "play along," and have an opportunity to discuss their own experiences with simulations. Bring a device that can run Excel to get the full experience. No experience is required, but some experience with Excel functions would be helpful. You will leave understanding how Excel's conditionals can be used to create gamelike scenarios.
