TECH FOR LAWYERS

Mastering Key Functions

STEP 1
Identify your key functions.
STEP 2
Learn only what you need. 
STEP 2
Retain what you learn.

Four ways lawyers go wrong with tech...

  • Lawyers don’t figure out what functions they need to know.
  • Lawyers don’t take the time to learn key functions right away.
  • Lawyers use the wrong tools for the job.
  • Lawyers learn how to use a tool—and then they forget about it.

SCENARIO

Let’s say you were asked to make a handout for a pitch to work with a prospective client.

Microsoft Word is not the right tool.

Use tools that generate sleek handouts.
