Description:

This course trains students to become efficient users of standard office software typically used by lawyers in practice, such as word processing, spreadsheets, and pdf documents.   In a competitive legal market, lawyers who are proficient in the use of office software will reduce costs for their employers and clients.

In addition, students will learn about software and other technologies designed for legal practitioners, providing students with a better practical foundation when they enter the modern legal market.

Finally, students will become familiar with technologies that compete with the services that lawyers provide, providing the students with a better understanding of how lawyers can distinguish their services from these products to provide value for their clients.
