It's always nice to learn a new tip or trick or two. I knew much of the content, but I did learn some useful things.

This was a good presentation and one that I still need further work with to be proficient. The presenter did a great job and I liked how she walked you through it.

I'd love an advanced version of this same training.

Very professional advice and tips on preparing documents for court.

I really appreciated the tips on making the documents much easier to work with.

This was a very helpful presentation. It was interesting to learn some of the tricks for Microsoft Word. I think this will be extremely useful when drafting documents. 

Very specific advice for legal writing, excellent presentation!
