University of Toronto - Faculty of Law

Microsoft Office for Law School & Beyond

As a law student, you likely know a thing or two about the standard Microsoft Office applications but how confident are you in your ability to use these applications to thrive now and in the future? In this session, Sean Dillman of Waythorn will address OneDrive, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, and Outlook, walking you through specific use cases that you may encounter at law school and after graduation. As an experienced lawyer with a background in private practice and legal technology, Mr. Dillman understands how to bridge the gap between law and IT, and the challenges that law students and new lawyers face when it comes to putting technology into practical use. No matter if you're a beginner or an expert computer user, chances are that you'll learn something new from Mr. Dillman's innovative, creative and practical approach to using Microsoft Office products at law school and beyond.
