Even if you aren’t in the job market, it’s important to know what skills are in hot demand.

Microsoft Word, Excel & Outlook (1.0 CLE) –

The Paperless Office (1.0 CLE) –

Paperless is a really hot topic lately… everyone wants to be paperless, but attorneys won’t let go of the hard copies… We’ll cover steps to take when transitioning to paperless, file conversions tips, data storage, file management, cloud computing and more.

Adobe Acrobat (1.0 CLE) –

We will walk you through some of the unique features that Adobe Acrobat offers to make any paralegals life easier and teach you some ways to utilize Acrobat in ways you’ve never even thought of to make you more efficient as well.

E-Discovery for Beginners (1.0 CLE) –

In this seminar we will discuss the basics of e-Discovery. It’s a hot topic and everyone wants you to know about it and know how to do it, even if you don’t actually “have” to do it as part of your job. In this beginners level seminar we will talk about the differences between discovery and e-discovery, how e-discovery works, why it’s an issue and how it impacts paralegals. We will learn about where ESI is found (if you don’t know what ESI is, you need to take this seminar NOW!), who has it and who is responsible for it. We will talk about all kinds of e-discovery terminology… metadata, native formats, hash values, de-NISTing, meet and confers, some best practices and a lot more.
