Index page link, close the web page you are on by clicking the “X”
at the upper right of your screen. (red dot, upper left for Macs) This will
take you back to the course where you can click on the lawworm.com link again.

page you are already on, just follow the exercise instructions from that point.
Finish the course, close the last web page, then transfer your answers from
the hardcopy to the screen and submit.
This is especially convenient when you are doing the course from a distance
(anywhere in the world) and using a laptop with no access to a printer.
Every course will start by clicking on the Lawworm.com Index page link contained
within the first exercise. You will launch onto the internet through the index
page interface, do the exercise, then will have to return to the course to answer
your question and move on to the next exercise. In order to return to the course
simply click on the Lawworm MCLE icon on your task bar. Your task bar is located
at the very bottom of your screen, to the right of the “Start,”
button. When an exercise directs you to continue with the web page you are/were
on, return to that web page by simply clicking the Lawworm.com icon again, which
will alternate you back to that web page. (Mac users alternate back with F10

ALWAYS PRINT A HARDCOPY OF THE COURSE whenever possible, even if you are doing
it entirely onscreen, because while you are working on a website there will
be a number of instructions given. It is much easier to follow the instructions
from the hardcopy as opposed to alternating back and forth to the course to
