Reading is an integral part in the practice of law, it is among the most used communication skills, but is often the most underdeveloped. Information from our colleagues, staff, and clients is being transmitted to us at the speed of light, and lawyers are expected to absorb it just as fast. This program is designed to teach you the skills of speed-reading. Practicing speed-reading legal documents and applying comprehension techniques will help you build memory and recall and get through those banker boxes of cases.
