Thanks to my good friend Bryan Sims of The Connected Lawyer blog for pointing out that Rick Borstein from Adobe (and the author of Acrobat for Lawyers blog) will be conducting a series of 3 hour Acrobat Forums for Legal Professionals around the country in September and October 2009, starting with Chicago on September 15, 2009. If you’ve never been to one of Rick’s Acrobat sessions, you need to try and go as he is terrific at explaining how lawyers can use Acrobat in their practices.
According to the post information, the forum will run from 9 AM to 12:30 PM and will cover:
- Assemble documents and correspondence in a single, well-organized PDF Portfolio, and even add multimedia and 3D images. All in a single PDF!
- Learn how to export PDF documents to editable formats like Word and Excel
- Take advantage of powerful document comparison tools to quickly detect changes between documents.
- Transform static electronic forms into interactive forms with just a few clicks.
- See how to collect data from forms
- Deliver multimedia to anybody because the entire Acrobat product line— including Adobe Reader— can natively play Flash content.
- Use Acrobat to apply passwords, set permissions, and permanently remove sensitive information— so you can feel confident your work is safe.
- Learn how to securely redact documents to protect company or client secrets
- Learn how to comment on PDF documents and collaborate with other reviewers. You’ll even see how to review video
In addition , they are evening throwing in a free "Full Breakfast Buffet" – wow, free food AND training!
In all seriousness, Acrobat can be used for many different purposes in all types of law practices by lawyers and their staff alike. You owe it to yourself to learn more about this product and what it can do in your legal practice.
