You probably should, if not for law school then for your career. If you're seen typing like that by a potential employer as a summer associate or by a client while practicing it probably won't build confidence in your skills. There are a few free typing tutor apps and webpages you can try. But I haven't used any commercial software like Mavis Beacon in well over a decade.And FYI, the word is "utmost."
It doesn't really matter. A lot of students in my class hand-wrote their exams simply b/c they had hand-wrote their notes all year long and didn't want to break the rhythm.I would've hand-wrote my exams except I've become so addicted to typing that my hand starts cramping if I write too fast for too long.A potential client or Partner would not care HOW you type a brief or memo. All the care is that it is ACCURATE and TURNED IN ON TIMEDo you know how many Lawyers can't tell you the difference between the Shift button and the Caps-lock key on a keyboard? Typed law school exams is only a recent phenomena. Ask any Lawyer/Professor that graduated 6-10 years ago, they'll tell you that "typing" your exam was only for the select few that actually brought laptops to school.
