Word Styles and Document Automation: Making documents more efficient in the practice of law

Technology has changed the practice of law and, increasingly, is creating new job opportunities for enterprising lawyers. Many practitioners and law students, though, do not unlock the true power of Microsoft Word. Instead, we treat it as a text-based word processor. This talk will expose attorneys, law students and those teaching law students to working with Word styles and taking advantage of document automation, navigation and assembly.   Law students can use Word styles in their resumes to give their job searches flexibility. The North Carolina Supreme Court recently released new rules for styling briefs and other court documents.   Learn how using templates already built into Word can ease these types of transitions and help automate document output.
After this session you will:
  • Understand the importance of Styles
  • Understand the difference between Paragraph, Character and Linked Styles
  • Create, Modify and Locate your Own Styles
  • Understand Where Styles Are Stored
  • Understand how to use Styles with court rules and resumes
  • Understand how to automatically create a Table of Authorities
