Adopting Word 2013 at Your Law Firm

By Eric R. Crowther
President, Crowther Consulting Corporation

If you are contemplating an upgrade to Word 2013 at your law office, you should first consider significant changes in Office product licensing, changes in certain features of Word that affect legal documents, and the integration of Office 2013 with third-party programs you may use.

Licensing Office 2013

Microsoft released Office 2013 last year. That does not mean you are required to upgrade from your current version of Office. However, you no longer can license and install an earlier version of Office, unless you have a Volume License that typically is available to firms with 50 or more users. Thus, at some point, you may feel compelled to adopt Office 2013.
