The Office of the Dean of Students and the D’Angelo Law Library are sponsoring Microsoft Office Training for Law School students on Sunday, October 5. This program earned rave reviews when we offered it in the past. It is meant to address what students will see in practice – new attorneys are expected to be able to do anything computer-related because they are generally the youngest person on the team, yet are at the bottom of the pecking order in terms of getting secretarial support. It’s really hard to teach yourself Power Point at 3 in the morning when the partner wants slides edited and the support staff have long ago gone home for the night. This program will give you the basic Microsoft Office skills you will need during the school year, in summer employment, and as an attorney.
The program will be held Sunday, October 5 with Word training from 9:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. and Excel & PowerPoint from 1:30 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. There is no charge for the program; you can attend the morning, afternoon, or both. Lunch will be provided. You must bring your own laptop; the program will be applicable for both Mac and PC users. Students must register in advance for this program at: http://www.law.uchicago.edu/microsoftofficetrainingRSVP. Please RSVP by 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, October 1st. Sponsored by the Office of the Dean of Students & the D’Angelo Law Library.
This program qualifies for up to 60 Keystone Professionalism and Leadership points in the Practical Skills category.
