If you have Microsoft Office, then you have Excel. However, if you are like most lawyers, you're either underutilizing Excel or not using it at all. In this seminar, we start with the basics and work our way up from there. You'll learn powerful ways that Excel can improve your work product and make your life easier. Every sample exercise we work through during the class centers around how law offices use Excel, so you will receive very relevant use case examples.
By the end of the seminar, you will understand how Excel can be utilized in a law practice and you will be able to set up spreadsheets on your own - even if you’ve never used it before or only used it on a very basic level.
Topics include how to use Excel in:
- Fiduciary accountings (or accountings of any type)
- Amortization schedules
- Real estate closing statements
- Disbursement schedules
- Asset/liability allocation schedules in family law
- Medical bill summaries
- Graphs (pie charts, bar graphs, etc.)
- Tax calculations
- Many different types of formulas/calculations
- Mail Merge functions in Word using Excel as the data source
