UPCOMING NALA WEBINARS

The Successful Paralegal in the Digital Age

 August 19, 2020 - 12:00PM

The legal industry has always been slow to adapt to change. But with the rapid development of technology, legal professionals must adapt to new technology and learn how to use it effectively. Otherwise, they run the risk of losing time, money, and patience while they work. Many software tools have tips and tricks to allow a paralegal to work efficiently and quickly. This session will discuss tips, tricks, and processes on using common technology such as Word, Excel, Outlook, and Adobe in everything you do and applying it to streamline your work, stay organized, and prioritize your tasks.
