“Why Do Lawyers Need Editors?”

Gosh, there are so many reasons. You can find editing help & more from a new blog (written by an experienced ‘wordsmith for law firms’); this post, for example:

"The firm of Vinson & Elkins has a scholarship program for high school students who are interested in ‘pursuing a career in law.’

"Great! But take a look at these excerpts from the firm’s overview of the program.

The funds for each student are submitted directly to their school . . . .

In addition to the financial support, V&E provides each scholarship recipient mentors and a summer job opportunities.

Each recipient achieved a score of at least 1100 on the SAT, had a financial need, and provided the Foundation with their application . . . and two letters of recommendation from their high school teachers and/or counselors . . . .

"While the students’ English teachers are teaching them to avoid singular/plural disagreements, the firm is suggesting that those disagreements are OK."
