In last week’s Tech Tuesday post, we promised to feature tips and tricks to help you increase the efficiency and productivity of your daily practice, many of which will focus on legal writing and document production using Microsoft Word. To kick off our series, we’re recommending a couple of good online resources for learning and/or fine-tuning your word processing skills. Using these sites to identify your weaknesses and build on your strengths, you’ll become an expert in document preparation and a master of efficiency!
Some of the best tutorials for learning the nuts and bolts of MS Word 2013 can be found, as expected, on the Microsoft website. These do-it-yourself lessons are grouped by skill level, covering everything from margins to mail merge. We also recommend the lessons at LearnFree.org, which cover basic operations and common tasks in MS Word 2010.
