You have probably noticed that PDF files are everywhere. They have become the file format of choice when trading documents with other lawyers and clients. Many courts now require that all pleadings be filed as PDFs and most governmental forms are available exclusively in PDF format. Regardless of the PDF program(s) your office uses, everyone in your office needs to understand the risks and benefits of PDF files. In this seminar, you'll learn appropriate uses of PDFs, and we'll cover extremely important topics such as metadata removal and electronic document security, redaction, Bates numbering, splitting/combining PDFs, reducing file-size for electronic case filing, review/comment and PDF collaboration, adding signatures and stamps, routing PDFs for comments/feedback, and more. Finally, we’ll identify the programs you can use for all of these functions (you are not limited to Adobe Acrobat) and explain their relative pros and cons.
