  19. Before we set up a style….…..let’s decide on what elements we want for each heading • Main headings: • Opinions Below, Jurisdiction, Statement of the Case, Summary of the Argument, Argument • First Level Point Headings • Second Level Point Headings

  20. Let’s Set Up a Style!

  21. Formatting a TOC FIRST: Insert the TOC SECOND: Right Click anywhere on the TOC to reveal the Field Menu THIRD: Select TOC from Field Names Menu FOURTH: Select Table of Contents Button

  22. Modifying Each TOC Level

  23. Match TOC styles to Heading styles MODIFY FONT, PARAGRAPH, NUMBERING WHERE NECESSARY

  24. Things you don’t want in your Table of Contents…. • If a Heading style was centered, you should change the corresponding TOC style to left • If a Heading style included outline numbering, the corresponding TOC style should remove the numbering.

  25. Styles: What You Need to Know • They exist • If you take the time to create them, you can easily assign headers and complex formatting to your document with one click • You can check existing documents to see what Styles you are importing • Clear Formatting to start over

  26. A Strong Document.. • Appropriate use of Styles • Appropriate use of numbering • Consistent headings and fonts • Pagination relevant to each section • No hanging headers at bottom of pages

  27. TEST YOUR KNOWLEDGE • How do you select a heading style to modify its format? • What format features (at a minimum) should you modify for each heading style?

  28. Section 2: Table of Authorities

  29. Table of Authorities • The act of inserting a TOA is easy if… you’ve properly categorized and marked your citations throughout your pleading. • How? Reference Ribbon> Insert Table of Authorities • When you want to update, Right Click and Update

  30. References Ribbon | Insert Table of Authorities

  31. Table of Authorities • HOW? A TOA draws from all of the “marked” citations in a document. A “marked” citation will be tagged with special information (which can be modified). • A tag for a citation may look something like this: U.S. v. DiPrima, 472 F.2d 550, 551 (1st Cir. 1973) { TA \l “U.S. v. DiPrima, 472 F.2d 550 (1st Cir. 1973)” \s “472 F2d. at” \c9 }

  32. Huhh???? • What does this mean?U.S. v. DiPrima, 472 F.2d 550, 551 (1st Cir. 1973) { TA \l “U.S. v. DiPrima, 472 F.2d 550 (1st Cir. 1973)” \s “472 F2d. at” \c9 } • The full or long citation follows the code “ \l ” • Purpose: Identifies how the citation should look in the TOA • The short citation follows the code “ \s ” • Purpose: Helps Word Mark All remaining citations for the case. • The last code – “ \c ” is the category number. • Purpose: Organizes your Table of Authorities into Categories.

  33. Setting Up Categories • Most trial and appellate briefs are likely to have at least two different categories of authorities • Here are some sample categories you could set up before you begin to mark your citations: • Supreme Court of the United States • Other Federal Authority • State Court Decisions • Statutory Provisions • United States Constitution

  34. Setting Up Categories • References Ribbon> Mark Citation Button> Category, OR Alt+Shift+I>Category • The first seven categories are pre-defined. Scroll down until you find an unused option (8, 9, 10, etc.) Replace the # with your own custom category.

  35. Marking Citations • For Most Citations • Highlight the first citation • References Ribbon>Mark Citation OR Alt+Shift+I • Correct your long cite to remove pinpoint cite • Correct short citations, so that you can "mark all“ – e.g., “994 F.2d at” • Select Mark All

  36. Finding the Next Citation • Select “Next Citation” and Repeat the Process: • Select Next Citation • Highlight the entry • Alt+Shift+I • Correct your long cite to remove pinpoint cite • Correct short citations, so that you can "mark all“ – e.g., “994 F.2d at” • Select Mark All

  37. Marking Citations • Second Occurrence of same long citation: • Best practice for briefs is to repeat a long citation if a short citation would be confusing to the reader – e.g., new page, new subheading, etc. • Treat as a new citation (with a couple twists) • Select Next Citation • Highlight the entry • Alt+Shift+I • BUT – instead of correcting the long and short citation, simply pick the case from the Short Citation List. • AND – Select Mark (NOT Mark All)

  38. Marking Citations • Second Occurrence of same long citation example

  39. Marking Citations • Deadling with "Id.___” and “In re” • GREAT NEWS!! MS Word 2007 will find “Id.” and “In re” by using the next citation button • In the case of “Id.”, simply select from the short citation drop down box to find the related case. • Treat “In re” like you would any new case • Select Mark

  40. TEST YOUR KNOWLEDGE • What is the short-cut for marking citations? • What is the purpose of the Short Citation function in Word? And how do I create one?

  41. To Update a TOC or TOA… • Simply insert a new TOC or TOA over the old one OR right-click anywhere on the TOC or TOA and select “update field” • Then “update page numbers only” or “update entire table”
