This guide was developed by Cynthia Condit for the University of Montana School of Law William J. Jameson Law Library. Used with permission.

INSERTING COVER PAGE INTO YOUR DOCUMENT (Using PC or MAC)


Create and save your Cover Page as a separate document.  As with the rest of your Appellate Brief formatting, create your Cover Page per your professor's instructions.


To insert your cover page into your main document:

  1. Go to the top of your main document
  2. Delete the words "Cover Page" (the words were typed in originally to serve as a marker)
  3. Leave the cursor where the capital C was
  4. Highlight and paste your Cover Page into your main document
