ISBA's Practice Toolbox Series
Presented by the Illinois State Bar Association
Microsoft Word is the sine qua non of business writing, and hence of legal writing. As as Mac-using attorney, Word for Mac is an essential tool not only for writing, but for communicating with Windows-using clients and colleagues. ISBA has run several Word for Windows webinars directed at teaching members skills essential to a modern word processor. In this one-hour Mac-specific look at Word**, we’ll show you the differences between the Mac and Windows version, and how to apply the techniques in those videos to your Mac environment. Moving beyond simply font and paragraph formatting, which are essentially identical between Windows and Mac, we’ll cover the Mac Word differences Mac users need to know, including styles, automatic paragraph numbering, and tables of contents.
