Practicing in a Pandemic: How to Mobilize Your Practice

In normal times, if we’d planned a virtual workshop on setting up a remote office or working while mobile, we’d talk about planning a transition and comparing options. We can’t do that now. The emergency is upon us. Join us to learn what you can do to keep working and maintain client relationships while remaining a good citizen as a practitioner of social distancing. We will give you specific tool recommendations (software and hardware you can buy without leaving your home) as well as techniques to practice that preserve the work mindset while operating in unusual times. Learn how to turn a small amount of space into a workable temporary office, how to maximize facetime with clients remotely, and how to conduct business at a distance.

Microsoft PowerPoint Power Tips for Legal Users

PowerPoint's use in the legal profession, both in and out of the courtroom, has become nearly invaluable. The course specifically focuses on presentations that are unique to lawyers. The topics contrast starkly with every popular PowerPoint manual on the market today, none of which teaches the features used specifically for the presentation of evidence in the courtroom or how to build a flow chart to explain the benefits of an AB Trust. Just a few of the ways in which PowerPoint can help legal professionals include opening statements and closing arguments in trial, presentations at mediation or arbitration, and presenting complicated legal concepts to clients so they can understand the legal issues involved in their matter. For judges, more and more are using PowerPoint to introduce rules and protocols in the courtroom, and instructions to the jury.
