A Lawyer’s Guide to PDF Files

You have probably noticed that PDF files are everywhere. They have become the file format of choice when trading documents with other lawyers and clients. Many courts now require that all pleadings be filed as PDFs; and most governmental forms are available exclusively in PDF format. Because of their prevalence, everyone in your office needs to understand the risks and benefits of PDF files. In this seminar, you'll learn appropriate uses of PDFs, and we'll cover extremely important topics such as metadata removal and electronic document security, redaction, Bates Numbering, splitting/combining PDFs, reducing file-size for electronic case filing, review/comment and PDF collaboration, adding signatures & stamps, routing PDFs for comments/feedback, and more. Finally, we’ll identify the programs you can use for all of these functions (you are not limited to Adobe Acrobat) and explain their relative pros and cons.

I Know I Need It, But Where Do I Start? Navigating Your Document Management Options

It’s no mystery that law firms need software to run their business – to store data, documents and email, manage workflow, avoid conflicts, and serve their clients. The problems faced by most law firms is that there is no TIME to find the RIGHT software, it is difficult to determine which features are valuable to your team and clients, and the number of options out there often keep firms from making a decision. In this webinar, we will demonstrate how to navigate the features in several document management programs – giving legal professionals a jump start on the research they should be doing before picking a product for their firm.
