    The use of common desktop software is so pervasive that it may seem more like an innate rather than acquired skill. A reminder that it is not comes from Casey Flaherty, corporate counsel at Kia Motors who has instituted a “tech audit” to test the computer skills of potential law firm hires. Although he stated...
