Recommended Book

The Goof-Proofer A wonderful little book by Stephen Manhard, the founder of SPELL (The Society for the Preservation of English Language and Literature). This is the only book we recommend because it deals strictly with grammar, not style, and is therefore more suited for legal proofreading work.

Reference Links

The Blue Book
The Style Guide to Legal Citations. We do cover basic Blue Book citation format in our class.

Roget's Thesaurus

Legal Dictionary
We recommend you invest in a small hardcover version, too.

Brush-Up on your Grammar

Apostrophe Rules
Highly recommended! All proofreaders should be clear on apostrophe usage.
