Crash Course CLE: Document Design for Lawyers:

Are you still holding down the space bar or tab key to move your signature block across the page? Repeatedly hitting the return key to push your certificate of service to the next page? What about those tables of contents for appellate briefs? Do you know how to format them properly? Effective document design about much more than aesthetics. It shows professionalism, gives you credibility, and even saves your clients money. Legal writer Tiffany Johnson of QP Legal will teach you how to make the most of Microsoft Word when drafting legal documents.
