Want to give yourself a competitive advantage in law? Pay more attention to the quality of your writing. Studies show that readers – including legal readers – strongly prefer clear, efficient, accurate prose.

You spend a lot of time in front of a computer, and if you’re not sending emails, you’re probably using Microsoft Word to create and edit documents. Whether you’re a transactional lawyer or litigator, you rely heavily on form documents and templates – for agreements, affidavits, pleadings, even letters.

Procrastination is an avoidance behavior that can be a serious issue for lawyers. It can impact the quality of your work and cause unnecessary stress, guilt and a loss of productivity. It can also result in failure to meet professional conduct and responsibility standards, and may lead to disciplinary action.
