Proofreading & Editing for Law Students & Academics

Our Services

You've done the reading and completed your work. Before you submit it you need to be sure that it is free of errors and that the arguments are clear and coherent. ProofreadLaw will help you achieve this.

We work for customers who are native English speakers as well as customers who are not. If English is not your first language, it can be difficult to express your ideas in the expected academic style. We have a great deal of experience in this area and we can help you to improve your written English.

Proofreading or Editing?

Proofreading looks for surface errors in your grammar, spelling and punctuation, and includes some light editing.

Editing addresses the structure and flow of a document; it also includes proofreading and the opportunity to discuss your work if required. Editing applies if you need more help with your English. 

If appropriate, we will suggest changes to:

• structure (sentences and paragraphs)
• organisation and coherence of arguments
• clarity of ideas
• use of appropriate vocabulary
• format and layout


We also offer an additional reference checking service if you want to ensure that you have followed referencing rules correctly in your footnotes and bibliography. The cost of this is the same as the editing cost, £10.99 per 1000 words. Please note, this is a reference checking service; it is not a reference rewriting service. If you have not followed any referencing rules we may still be able to help. Please contact us to discuss this further.

The finished product

As we work through your document we will make changes using Microsoft 'Track Changes' and we may also write comments and suggestions in the margin. We will return two copies to you: one copy will show the corrections we have made, the other copy will be the clean copy with all the corrections accepted in the document. You will, of course, be able to accept or reject any of the changes we have made.
