The legal world is facing a different kind of accusation as of late. Many scholars suggest that the writing skills of old have disappeared with the presence of new technology. Despite distractions in the past, the increasing prevalence of gadgets in the workplace and at home are making it harder than ever to reach the concentration level necessary to complete a successful piece of prose. The blame is being placed on our culture’s desire for instant gratification, a problem that will not soon be addressed. As a temporary solution, several firms are reaching out to writing training programs in order to hone their employees skills but the jury is still out on whether or not this will prove helpful. In the meantime lawyers are encouraged to focus their reading on pieces involving language and writing skills.
