ON AVERAGE 20 ERRORS
Being a native English speaker is NOT a qualification for editing and proofreading legal documents.
On average we have found that each thesis we receive from students contains on average 20 errors on a single page. Editing and proofreading a thesis of 60,000 – 100,000 words takes about 5 days. This is because our Comprehensive Editing and Proofreading service meets academic and publishing standards.
So is your thesis error-free?

So who’s your proofreader?
WRITE A RESEARCH PROPOSAL
Try writing down your ideas and your references, then ensure that it is long enough/contains the correct sections to be considered.
Start reading in the areas that you want to conduct your PhD. Then start writing some notes on what your research will talk about and why it is novel. Add in the references you have so far. Then we can take it from there.
If you are stuck for ideas, let us know we will help you realise your goals of getting into a PhD program and we will do our best to assist.
MORE THAN JUST EDITING YOUR THESIS
Our editing and proofreading service offers more than just proofreading your thesis or dissertation. If you do some research we think that you will find almost all proofreaders simply read your work and correct obvious spelling and grammar errors. If they are not law professors they will most likely have no idea whether your terminology is correct and they will not even notice incorrect word choices.
This is especially important for an LLM or a PhD candidate who speaks English as a second language (ESOL). You cannot always discern the correct word for a particular legal context since you are not completely familiar with English legal terminology. Even specialist translators sometimes choose the wrong word for a particular legal context because they are translating – they lack the knowledge about the law in English to choose the correct terminology for the correct context.
