Our Legal Proofreading Skills course trains anyone working in the legal profession to proofread effectively.
The course begins with a review of proofreading principles and techniques. It then goes through a review of English usage, ending with a lesson on legal definitions and another on checking citations.
Your course includes pre- and post-tests for the course and each lesson, plus assignments, practice activities, and written competency exams. Similar to how college classes work, you do your assigned work on your own, then submit it to your instructor, who grades, comments upon, and returns the assignment to you. The instructor will coach you in this way until you master the skills. FYI, you instructor is also available via email or phone.
