Adobe Acrobat for Lawyers – PDFs and a Whole Lot More

March 20 @ 9:00 am - 12:15 pm

PBI Simulcast – PDFs are the standard for creating, analyzing, storing, and exchanging digital documents, for filing documents in courts with electronic filing systems, and for many other uses. This program will demonstrate how lawyers can use Adobe Acrobat Pro software to (1) create, edit and annotate PDFs, (2) create electronic signatures, (3) redact sensitive information to protect client confidentiality, (4) convert all types of electronic files into searchable PDFs, and (5) improve their productivity in legal research and case preparation.
