    Microsoft Word Tools to Utilize as a Lawyer

    There are multiple tools that are beneficial to use as a lawyer. One of the most common and easily accessible tools is Microsoft Word. We’re going to dive into a few of the best functions and options you can utilize as a lawyer within Microsoft Word. 

    Comparing Two Documents

    If you need to compare two documents to find the difference between them, good news for you. Microsoft Word has an option for that! You can use the legal blackline feature to compare documents and see the difference between two documents immediately. You can find this under the “Review” tab.

    Learn Shortcut Keys

    For lawyers, every minute counts. You can save a lot of time by using shortcut keys in Microsoft Word. Here are a few of the most commonly using shortcuts:

    Ctrl + X : Cut

    Ctrl + C : Copy

    Ctrl + V : Paste

    Ctrl + Shift + V : Paste unformatted

    Ctrl + Z : Undo

    Ctrl + Y : Redo

    Ctrl + S : Save


    One of the most popular features in Microsoft Word is using a template. Using templates will make it easier for you to precisely create legal documents. Some lawyers depend on copy and pasting document information, however that can lead to errors and confidentiality breaches if you recklessly fail to remove a previous client’s data. This is why templates are a good choice for legal document automation.

    If you’re working with multiple associates, using Microsoft Word templates will ensure consistency of style from one colleague to another. By having one template for all attorneys in your office, you keep your branding message consistent and professional. Also, use Microsoft Word system fonts so that there is consistency in all of your documents no matter where it is opened. Having a specific font helps your branding and limits mistakes from happening. These are a few examples of tools you can utilize as a paralegal through Microsoft Word.
