(Original Webinar Date: October 19, 2022)

Who should attend: Lawyers and staff who want to utilize PDFs effectively and to improve efficiency

Learning level: All levels

You probably noticed that PDF files are everywhere. They are the file format of choice when trading documents with other lawyers and clients. Many courts now require that all pleadings be filed as PDFs; most governmental forms are only available in PDF format; and if you want to reduce paper in your office, then PDFs are front and center. 

Because of their prevalence, everyone in your office needs to understand the risks and benefits of PDF files. Regardless of the PDF program you use, this course will show you the appropriate uses of PDFs. We'll cover extremely important topics such as redaction, metadata removal and electronic document security, Bates Numbering, splitting/combining PDFs, reducing file-size for electronic case filing, review/comment and PDF collaboration, adding signatures & stamps, routing PDFs for comments/feedback, and more. Finally, we'll identify the programs you can use for all of these functions (you are not limited to Adobe Acrobat) and explain their relative pros and cons.
