Understanding Details

by Andrew Saad

I’m starting to notice that, more than anything, being a lawyer is highly dependent on two things:
1. Your ability to notice the details of every sentence.
2. Your ability to extract the meaning of every word in every sentence.

I found this definition when reading an article by His Grace Bishop Angaelos of the UK about same sex marriage.

Marriage is originally a religious institution.

Marriage was originally between man and woman, therefore the existence of same sex marriage was never established to be banned.

—But that’s a topic for a different time.

Although my attention to detail isn’t nearly as intricate as I would like it to be; it’s something that I will be working on.

Silence allows details to reveal themselves in every quiet corner of a page, speaking hinders attention.
