Brief Builder's Workshop

My Brief Builder's Workshop course covers the specific Microsoft Word features attorneys and law office staff use to format legal briefs and other complex pleadings.

In Brief Builder's Workshop, I cover topics like:

  • Common TOA mistakes and how to fix them
  • What all that gobblydegook in the TOA hidden text really means, and how understanding it can save you from re-editing your TOA again and again
  • Fixing wrong TOA entries without re-marking all your citations
  • How to fix Table of Authorities and Table of Contents formatting so it actually sticks
  • Two methods for marking text for your Table of Contents (and when one is better than the other)
  • How to format your brief with distinct page numbering (i vs. 1 vs. C-1) in each section

This course provides you some targeted help with legal-specific features like Table of Authorities plus how to use other features like Table of Contents, page numbering and document sections within the specific context of producing a legal brief.

Here's a list of the lessons:

Lessons in the Course

TOA: Marking your first citation

Because the lessons deal with a very specific context, chances are you've come here because you're right in the middle of an actual brief and need some targeted help with the formatting that comes with producing legal briefs.

This course covers the features that get little to no attention in the Microsoft Word manuals you buy in a bookstore or on other websites about Word. It's also focused specifically on how these features are used in a legal context.

All course content is based on the Windows-based version of Microsoft Word (sorry Mac users!) and covers versions 2010 through 2019 (a.k.a. the desktop version of Office 365). So whether you're up on the latest and greatest Word version or you've been putting off upgrading ... you're covered.
