ISBA's Practice Toolbox Series

Presented by the Illinois State Bar Association

If you have any version of Microsoft Office, then you already own Microsoft Excel. If you are like most lawyers, you’re either underutilizing it or not using it at all. This one-hour webinar** makes no assumptions regarding preexisting knowledge of Excel. We start with basics and work our way up from there. We’ll show you powerful ways that a spreadsheet program (Microsoft Excel) can improve your work product and make your life easier. Learn how Excel can help you produce flawless estate and guardianship accountings, amortization schedules, real estate closing statements, disbursement schedules, medical bill summaries, date calculations, and graphical representations of any data you feed it.
