I was really excited about this class I’m taking: Technology and the Law Office. Sounds interesting, obviously lots of info that I will need. What I wasn’t expecting was to be lost:/
Last week was week 2, and the assignment had me spinning. Create an excel spreadsheet to bill time for a multiple vehicle accident over a two week period. We were allowed to use a template if we wanted. Since I don’t work in a law office and never have, I had mo clue what this spreadsheet should look like so I went with a template I thought I could easily modify to fit my needs. Yea right!
Let’s just say after hours, days of researching what is involved in that type of case, people that work on a case, and what the hell billable hours are I turned in a half ass assignment. It is killing me because that’s not me nor does it show the actual time and effort I spent on the assignment. But once I began modifying the spreadsheet I realized it wasn’t allowing me to utilize all functions and modify the way I needed to. So I turned it in and emailed my teacher. I am hoping I might be able to redo it this week an sen it to her just for my personal critique. This is the first real struggle I’ve had with this. I feel crappy. But this week is a new week with new assignments. I just need to kick some butt and pull some A’s! Wish me luck!
