Paradigm's new Legal Editing and Proofreading textbook provides current and aspiring legal support staff with the critical thinking and language skills they need to work in a legal office. Skills such as understanding legal processes, being confident in editing and proofreading legal documents, and being able to anticipate problems before they occur are important for every employee. This text addresses these skills by reviewing and explaining legal procedures, and then asking students to apply their knowledge in realistic work situations.

The textbook:

  • Teaches editing, proofreading, and critical thinking skills for legal professionals.
  • Reviews major legal procedures and applicable how-to guides.
  • Provides real-life applications within projects and activities.
  • Equips students with the skills necessary to analyze documents and determine if they are complete and accurate.

Praise for the Book

“I have approximately 16 years of legal experience and I purchased the Legal Editing and Proofreading book from one of the authors. Ms. Kolbinger and Lynda Ernst wrote an exceptional book in Legal Editing and Proofreading. I found it very organized and easy to read. I was very impressed with the content! I specifically studied the chapter on civil procedure and found the section on civil litigation just what I was looking for to better understand the civil process. The critical thinking sections were well written and challenging. The CD was a bonus in applying the knowledge gained to an actual legal situation. I would recommend this product to professors in a four-year institute or two-year vocational college as a great means to supplement their course work.”

—Anita Bohn, South Dakota
