Microsoft Office For Law School & Beyond

Part 1 - OneDrive & Word
Part 2 - Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote & Outlook
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?

Do you know how to use OneDrive to ensure that your documents are safe on the cloud and easy to share with others including classmates and colleagues? Word to tackle styling and formatting issues, unlock the power of custom fields, produce mail merges, and use text-to-speech software to proof your emails and eliminate typos? Excel to produce basic tables and use certain advanced features? PowerPoint to make diagrams and organizational charts to assist with presenting complicated information in an easy-to-understand visual way? OneNote to centralize digital information, keep it organized, and use speech-to-text software so that you can use your voice to make notes faster and easier? Outlook to schedule email delivery, manage and share your calendar, and auto-sort your incoming email? 

In this two-part series, Sean Dillman addresses these questions and walks 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. He also understands 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, you’ll learn something new from this innovative, hands-on session.
