Are all documents the same price?

Prices start at £10 per 1,000 words. I proofread and edit a huge variety of legal documents, from essays to dissertations, from simple clauses to complex translations of statutes. Every document is different and requires a different level of work. You may need a simple proofread or you may need a heavier level of editing. Perhaps you are an international student needing particular assistance with language. Size of the document will also be relevant – larger documents can often attract lower rates per 1,000 words. Your required turnaround may also impact the quoted price.

Obtaining a quotation

Before I can provide a quotation, I will need to know:

  • the nature of the document (essay, report, thesis, etc.)
  • the number of words
  • the referencing system to be followed (for example, OSCOLA)
  • the required turnaround.

You can contact me by using the online chat box, sending me a message via the Contact page or by emailing me at info@legalproofreader.co.uk.

After receiving a quotation

If you are a new client, I will ask you to pay 50% of the agreed price upfront. Payment may be made by BACS or PayPal. I will also ask you to sign a Booking Form.

How I return proofread documents

I work in Word Track Change. Unless you ask otherwise, you will receive two versions of your proofread document(s) – a ‘with changes’ version (showing all of the amendments in red) and a ‘clean’ version (with all of those changes accepted). Don’t worry if you aren’t familiar with Track Change; I will send you full instructions with the return of your proofread work.

The proofread document(s) will be returned to you by email within the agreed turnaround period. You will also receive an invoice, to be paid by PayPal or BACS.
