Thank you for visiting the Family Law Lawyer Tech & Practice blog. My name is John Harding. I am a family law lawyer practicing in Northern California. Long ago I realized that I could practice law more effectively and more efficiently (i.e., better and easier) by availing myself of the technological tools that are out there. I also learned that a successful law practice requires successful marketing. Hardware and software working together make me a better lawyer, and make my life easier. Marketing helps to bring in the business necessary for professional survival. By this blog I hope to share the tips, tricks, and technology that I have learned about so that others may benefit!

Table of Authorities in Word

Call me strange, but there is something visually appealing about a well laid out brief.  The ruled and numbered lines give structure and design.  The even spacing creates a nice balance of black on white.  Case citations bring reliability and precedent.  The table of authorities makes finding and citing the relevant authorities a breeze.  When everything is laid out all nice and even and straight, it is pleasing on my eye.

If you have ever worked on a brief with any number of cases and codes cited you know that generating that oh so important table of authorities can be a real challenge.  Microsoft Word has a pretty good table of authorities generator, if you know how to use it.  Over at Lawyerist.com Deborah Savadra gives us a great step-by-step tutorial on how to make Word's table of authorities feature work for you!  This is a great instructional  Click here to learn!
