Speed Reading for Lawyers

Speed Reading Training

Synopsis

"It's easy to see how speed reading could make my life easier, but going faster will mean losing out on detail, won't it?"

Well, no, actually.

Here's a course that pays attention to both speed and comprehension, and helps you to develop a range of techniques so that you can read faster and more effectively.

 

Outcomes

Speed reading consists of  a range of techniques to rapidly absorb text and the important content on a page. We can show you that being a lawyer that has to be focussed to the detail, doesn't mean you have to be a slow reader.

As a result of attending our Speed reading for lawyers course, you will:

  1. build your range of reading skills
  2. learn how to choose reading techniques appropriate to the text
  3. learn how to increase your reading speed and maintain or improve your comprehension
