Technology in the Law Office (Getting the Most Out of Microsoft 365, Adobe Acrobat and More)

8:55        Welcome and Introductions

9:00        Technology in the Law Office

Catherine Sanders Reach, North Carolina Bar Association, Cary

Technology took a front seat for lawyers during the pandemic, whether they wanted to use it or not. Then generative AI caught the attention of the legal world. However, there is still a lot you can do with some basic tools you use every day, you just might not know it. During this in-depth session, we explore some of the ways to get the most out of the Microsoft productivity suite (Outlook, Word and Excel), plus Adobe Acrobat tips and more. Busy lawyers and legal professionals can take advantage of techniques to enhance their skills so they can focus on the message and not the mechanics.

This program includes one 15-minute break.
