Microsoft Word is the most important technology for legal writers, but few lawyers know how to use it effectively. I made the one-hour screencast below to show my Advanced Legal Writing students at UCLA Law how to increase their productivity with the software.

Topics covered in the screencast include:

  • Understanding and changing templates

  • Working with styles

  • Working with footnotes

  • Creating hanging indents

  • Creating helpful keyboard shortcuts

  • Setting up a table of contents and table of authorities

  • Creating images and captions

  • Using the keyboard to navigate text quickly

  • Various other tricks

I hope you find the screencast helpful. If you do, please share this post with your networks.
