Time-Saving Tips for Lawyers: 60 Tips in 60 Minutes
The following free online CLE tutorial, "Time-saving Tips for Lawyers: 60 Tips in 60 Minutes", should save you time reading, writing about, and researching the law.
It takes around 1 hour to scroll through all the tips and complete the exercises. Or you can browse the tips out of sequence by navigating the "Time-Saving Tips" link from the "Extras" menu (above).
The Tips come from an audio recording we made in 2008. Back then, you had to purchase Win More Cases: The Lawyer's Toolkit to receive the bonus audio recording. But, now, both the Toolkit and the Tips are available as free online resources.
If you find the Tips relevant to your professional development, then you might be able to claim continuing legal education or continuing professional development points. Check the rules of your local Bar Association or Law Society to find out if this tutorial qualifies for CLE or CPD points.
The Tips come in 4 main Parts:
- Part 1 helps you save time searching the Internet, provides useful and handy shortcuts when using Microsoft Word, and suggests ways to save time with your email.
- Part 2 helps you save time finding the law in the law library.
- Part 3 helps you save time reading the law.
- Part 4 helps you speed-up the writing process, and it helps you make your writing easier and quicker to read.
