It's Time For a Change - Better Methods for Drafting Legal Documents

Event Description

Deadline to Register: October 14, 2017 

Most lawyers draft new documents by finding old documents and modifying them to work for the next case or client (by either direct modification or dictation/transcription).  While that approach might be better than starting from a blank page, it has an unacceptably high margin of error and is slower than alternative methods.  It's simply too easy to miss a required change, leave something in that should have been removed, or forget to add something missing from the original.  Further, if the document one starts with was previously negotiated with opposing counsel, it's going to be full of compromised language which is difficult to spot.  There are many superior alternatives to this approach.  In this seminar, we'll show you how to find and consolidate the best of your intellectual capital in a way that increases drafting speed and accuracy while avoiding the aforementioned risks.  Finally, you'll see the spectrum of automation tools from the amazing things your word processor is already capable of, to document assembly applications like HotDocs.  For document-intensive and transactional areas of practice, improved drafting methods directly impact the bottom line and improve client satisfaction.  Prepare to be amazed at the possibilities.
