Assessment 1: Establish drafting requirements Part 1 – Costs Agreement
Jake Paul was recently appointed as Partner with Alvarez & Paul Lawyers, joining Vincent Alvarez who is the firm’s Managing Partner. Accordingly, the firm updated their name from Alvarez Lawyers to Alvarez & Paul Lawyers and had all their company stationery updated to incorporate the new firm name and logo. You have been asked by the Managing Partner, Vincent Alvarez, to update the existing firm’s costs agreement precedent and create a template. Open the Microsoft Word document Alvarez Lawyers Costs Agreement. Make all the amendments listed below to this document and save as a template.
Vincent’s specific instructions are outlined below:
1. Using the A&P Lawyers – Letterhead template provided in the LMS, copy the header and footer from this document and insert this as a header and footer into the Alvarez Lawyers Costs Agreement document.
• The Alvarez Lawyers header is formatted in a table, to remove it click on the entire section or the top left and select ‘delete table’
• If when copying the address footer into the Costs Agreement it creates an additional enter/ return below the address details you should delete this extra enter/return
• The header and footer should appear on the first page only.
Show/hide button
The show/hide button in Microsoft Word allows you to see all the formatting in a document such as spaces,
tabs, page, and section breaks. They do not print out, they are onscreen only. We recommend you turn this feature on so that you can see a documents formatting.
2. Change the name of the firm at the top of the document from Alvarez Lawyers to Alvarez & Paul Lawyers.
3. You are now required to insert 5 fill-in fields in areas with red text.
• Each fill-in field should be named as per the text in red
• Delete the text in red in the original document once you have inserted the 5 fill-in fields.
Position your curser at the beginning of the first fill-in field e.g. Name of client. Go to the
Insert tab on the ribbon, find the Text group (at the far right on the Insert ribbon). Choose the
Explore Quick Parts icon. Choose the Field option. In the Field Names box scroll down to find Fill-in, then in the Field Properties Prompt box type in your fill-in data e.g. Name of client. Repeat this process for each section in red text (there are 5 in total). Refer to Microsoft Word Tips section in the Workbook for more instructions.
4. Save your document as a template on your computer, Part 1 – A&P Lawyers Costs Agreement.
A template is saved to your computer where your computer stores Word Templates. Once the document is completed choose File, Save As, and save the document as a Word Template. To find your template choose File, New and it will either appear under New or
Personal. Only when the document has been saved as a template will you be able to use the fill-in fields. Refer to Microsoft Word Tips section in the Workbook for more instructions.
5. Test your fill-in field options. To do this, you will need to open this template as a new document to check they are working. You can just skip the fields and not fill in.
6. Click on Alt F9 so that your fill-in fields are visible and save this document as a normal Word document called Part 1 – A&P Lawyers Costs Agreement. This is the only document required for submission.
Fill-in fields only work when you open a new document that has been created from a template. Pressing Alt+F9 will make your fill-in fields appear and disappear

b. Explain how you would undertake a review process with Vincent of your suggested improvements. For example, explain an internal procedure to follow when and if documents need to be updated, amended or improved.
2. Spell check your document and ensure you have adequately answered both questions.

Part 6 – Claim 1
Deborah Pepper who is assisting you and Jake Paul, has been given a Claim to prepare for Jake. It is her first Claim, and she has asked you for some help in preparing it. In fact, this is the first time anyone in the firm has used this new precedent. It has been developed by you in an earlier assessment and now it is finally being tested.
Part 6 (and Part 7 which follows) require completion within a designated timeframe. The timeframe for completing Part 6 is 30 minutes. When you are ready to complete this part, you will need to telephone or email MMLC to be provided with the information to be inserted into the Claim. Once this information has been provided to you via email, you will have 30 minutes to complete the Claim and return it to MMLC.
1. Use the Claim precedent you created as Part 3 – Claim.
2. Insert into the Claim the information provided by Jake (which will be provided to you by MMLC via email).
3. Spell check and proofread your document.
4. Save the Claim now as Part 6 – Claim 1.
5. Upload the completed Claim to the LMS (or email MMLC) within the agreed timeframe.
Part 7 – Claim 2
You completed the Claim with Deborah and hand it to Jake to review. He advises that his original calculations are incorrect.
As mentioned above, Part 7 requires completion within a designated timeframe. You need to have completed Part 6 above, before you complete Part 7. You are to make contact with your trainer to receive the required amendments to this Claim. You will have 30 minutes to make these amendments.
1. Open up the Claim from Part 6 and now save a copy as Part 7 – Claim 2.
2. Make the modifications as instructed.
3. Spell check and proofread your document.
4. Save the Claim as Part 7 – Claim 2.
5. Upload the completed Claim to the LMS (or email MMLC) within the agreed timeframe.
Assessment 4: Finalise draft Part 8 – Jake memo
Jake has left the office for a client meeting and will not be back by the time both you and Deborah leave for the day. You know that he is likely to return to the office later in the evening to continue working so you decide to leave a file copy and a final copy of the Claim you prepared in Part 7 on this desk for his review.
There are two tasks within this assessment.
1. Prepare a memo addressed to Jake requesting that he review the Claim and sign it if he is ready for it to be despatched to the court.
• You are required to add the claim you prepared in Part 7 to this memo (see the instructions for adding the Claim to the memo below).
• Save this document as Part 8 – Jake memo with Claim 2
Memo with Claim attached
For this assessment task you are required to prepare a memo to Jake, which is 1 page long, and add Part 7 – Claim 2 which is 2 pages long to create one document which is 3 pages long.
Follow the instructions below to ensure that the Alvarez & Paul Lawyers branding, which is in the header of the memo, and the address, which is in the footer of the memo, appear only on the first page of the memo.
• To do this in Microsoft Word, insert a section break at the end of Jakes memo. Insert a
“Next Page” section break – this is usually the only one you will ever need. This section break will create a second page (Tip: If you turn on the show/hide feature you will see where the section break is on the screen)
• Copy and paste the 2 pages of Part 7 – Claim 2 to the second page. Initially, you will see the Alvarez & Paul Lawyers header and footer on the second page, but once you paste in the claim text, the header and footer will disappear
• Inserting a section break will ensure the formatting of your original document, the memo to Jake, is not affected by the formatting of the 2 pages of the Claim you are adding.
Section breaks are located under ‘Breaks’ in the ‘Layout’ tab on the ribbon.
2. Open up Part 7 – Claim 2 and resave this as Part 8 – Claim 2 File Copy. Insert a “File Copy” watermark on this Claim. This one is a copy for the clients file.
3. There are two assessments to submit for this part: • Part 8 – Jake memo with Claim 2 and
• Part 8 – Claim 2 File Copy.
