FAQs


  1. Why do students use Law Thesis Proofreading?
    Law students know that by coming to lawthesisproofreading.com they will be able to engage directly with law professors who are fully aware of their subject since we teach law courses ourselves. We have read many theses and we understand what the student is trying to accomplish when writing their thesis. Most students appreciate the fact that a law professor is proofreading their thesis. It gives them confidence in submitting their thesis to the examiners. Many of our clients are referred by friends and fellow students who have found our service to be superior to all others that they have tried.
  2. What’s the difference between us and other proofreading services?
    Many online proofreading services do not tell you the identity of their proofreaders, so you do not know who will be editing your work. In addition, they may not even be from a legal academic background or they might be a student just like you. You will see that they call themselves ‘project managers’, ‘editors’, or ‘proofreaders’ and that is quite different from being a law professor – they could be nothing more than a native English speaker, an undergraduate student making some cash on the side. By contrast, Law Thesis Proofreading uses only law professors who are currently lecturing at universities.
  3. What types of documents do you proofread?
    Students from around the world send us documents as diverse as chapters in theses, completed PhD theses, LLM theses, PhD and SJD research proposals, law essays, conference abstracts, and law review articles. We understand that a dissertation or thesis is the result of many, many hours of research and writing – our service helps you to ensure that the end product matches your intentions and your supervisor’s (or your target journal’s) expectations.
  4. Do you offer a Free editing review
    After you have submitted your thesis, your supervisors or examiners might ask you to make some changes before they will accept the work. We guarantee that we will review those post-submission comments and we will make the changes requested by your supervisors/examiners free of charge. If the changes are substantial we can still assist you but there may be a small additional charge, depending on the extent of the changes required. Our Free Editing Review Guarantee gives you peace of mind that ‘we have your back’.
  5. What writing style do you follow?
    It’s up to you to choose which writing style you want us to follow when editing and proofreading your thesis. Our Submission Form is based on 5 categories for you to choose from: OSCOLA (UK), The Blue Book (US), NLSG (NZ), Business Editing, and Leave As Is. As for English spelling: you can choose English UK or English US. Normally, your choice of writing and citation style its based around the university that you are studying at. But check with your supervisors first.
  6. How do you set your proofreading prices?
    There are many proofreading websites online that offer lower prices, but as the saying goes, ‘you get what you pay for’. Many online proofreading services do not tell you who is editing your thesis. In addition, they may not even be from a legal academic background or they might be a student just like you. They could be nothing more than a native English speaker. By contrast, Law Thesis Proofreading uses only law professors who are currently lecturing at universities. We also provide you with detailed feedback so you can improve your own writing in the future.
  7. Do you charge extra for revision requested by the examiners?
    Examiners will sometimes request some style or formatting changes to your thesis after you submit it to them. We are happy to make those changes for you free of charge.
  8. Do you offer urgent proofreading?
    Yes, we do offer urgent editing and proofreading, a fee is applicable, which depends on the type of document and the word count. Please contact us first.
  9. How long does it take to proofread my thesis?
    We are very busy, and our turnaround for theses is usually between 7-20 days depending on the word count. For documents less than 3000 words, the usual turnaround is 48hr. Please contact us first as our turnaround changes by the day.
  10. Do you guarantee that my document won’t be misused?
    Yes, we do guarantee 100%. We do this by keeping all your files offline as this is the only way to keep your files totally safe from online misuse. Should you need a copy of your files at any time you will need to contact us to send you a copy. We maintain strict confidentiality and we do not discuss you or your work with any third parties.
