What is Proofreading?
Proofreading is the process by which a legal document is thoroughly reviewed for various categories of errors, such as grammar, spelling, punctuation, transposition, incorrect capitalization, number expression, incorrect idiom usage, and various other style and formatting mistakes. Proofreading also provides a scrupulous review of content inconsistencies and usage errors specific to the legal industry. Proofreading should be conducted by legal experts who have experience drafting legal documents and are adept at recognizing industry specific legal terms of art and specific content formatting and citations required by the rules of procedure.
Why is Proofreading important?
Proofreading by an independent party is a critical part of the legal drafting process, and could determine the outcome of your case since proofreading is the final step before submitting the documents to the court. Placing a comma or colon in the incorrect place or not having the proper formatting throughout the document could result in a major difference in how the document is interpreted. Proofreading allows you and your lawyers to eliminate the errors that might have been missed in the initial stages of analyzing the documents, and ensures your written legal document uses the proper legal terminology and sentence construction to convey the right intent and present the most compelling and persuasive written document to the court and opposing counsel.
