ISBA's Practice Toolbox Series

Presented by the Illinois State Bar Association

 

Today's negotiated instruments are often never reduced to paper until they're ready to sign. The negotiation occurs electronically with lawyers emailing documents (Word or PDF files) to one another (and clients) to indicate changes and proposed modifications. Explore the tools available in Microsoft Word and Adobe Acrobat for safely transmitting documents, comparing versions, tracking changes, and adding comments and other annotations. A discussion on "locking" a document down to prevent further changes, encryption, avoiding metadata and other collaboration tools is also included.
