Legal Education Program
NCRF’s Legal Education Program seminar, “Making the Record,” has received high praise. This seminar is designed to educate law students, young attorneys, and judges about the importance of making a good record. Seminar tools are provided to court reporters for free and are designed to be customized for the specific audience. For more information, please contact April Weiner, Foundation Manager at 800/272-6272, x 152, or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Making the Record is a publication of the National Court Reporters Association and has undergone several revisions since it was first published in 1937. The purpose of the booklet remains to help the bench and bar better understand the factors that help make a clear record.
Presentation Tools for "Making the Record"
Below are teaching tools to present a class on “Making the Record.” This is one of NCRF’s major programs, and these tools are designed so that they can be used as is, or reporters may refine them to suit their own style or to adapt them to the type of presentation.
This presentation outline is for the presenter’s use and reference only. It’s not a handout.

In this PowerPoint you may customize this presentation with your own information. Before a live presentation, view this document through Slideshow so you can see how the animated bullets, etc., progress.
Here are three handouts with a cover sheet. The cover sheet should be edited to reflect the location, class, and date.
