When legal instruments require complex formatting, most Word users struggle to get the document to look the way they want.

Users often describe it as a "wrestling match" or having to "outsmart the program." Some advanced features like automatic paragraph numbering, tables of contents, and tables of authority seem inaccessible or broken. Because legal users require so much of Word, they often feel extremely frustrated by it.

If you’re sick of the struggle, this class is designed by a lawyer for legal users to master and control Word.

Bring Your Laptop: We'll make the sample files we use in the exercises available in advance as a download so you can follow along with the exercises in class.

Which Version of Word: The program covers Word for Windows 2019/Office 365, however, the manual included in the program materials covers Word 2007, 2010, 2013, 2016, 2019 and 365. Word for Mac 2011 and Word for Mac 2016/19/365 manuals are also available for download.

Free Support: Attendees will be given three days of free Word technical support after the program provided by Affinity Consulting Group.
