Freelance Legal Writers for Hire

Legal writing is a form of technical writing which is used to develop any content used in the legal industry. Thus, legal writing is the analysis of fact patterns and presentation of arguments in legal memos and briefs. A professional content writer who specializes in writing legal documents is known as a legal writer.

What Legal Writers Do?

Legal writers draft content for documents, such as written arguments, letters and notices, appellate briefs and others, that are necessary for carrying out legal proceedings. They may also write content for legal publications and brochures, academic materials, legal newsletters as well as web content and news for legal issues.

Legal writers can be further classified into brief writers, legal analysts, legal correspondents, feature writers and corporate writers. Brief writers perform research and draft briefs, motions, memorandums and other legal documents whereas legal analysts may summarize case law and prepare news summaries. Legal correspondents report and analyze news regarding the legal industry whereas feature writers publish articles on legal topics across different media.

Legal writers also provide legal research services. These include identifying and retrieving information necessary to support legal decision-making. They are typically associated with publishing houses, magazines, law firms and corporate houses, while a number of professionals also offer freelance services online. These professionals are always looking to get freelance projects in top freelance marketplaces like Guru.

When looking at legal writers for hire, make sure your freelancer can:

  • Prepare, analyze and review diverse range of legal agreements and documents.
  • Breakdown complex terminology into every day, relevant content.
  • Continuously update and improve legal forms, documents and contract databases.
  • Liaise with others professionals in the legal field to ensure accuracy of all information.

Qualifications of a Legal Writer

It is ideal for your freelancer to have the following skills:

  • Professional education in paralegal studies or experience in legal administration
  • Familiarity with laws, legal procedures and protocols of the particular place
  • Superior research skills
  • Exceptionally strong writing and legal citation skills
  • Logical reasoning skills

Other than that, a legal writer should be trustworthy and maintain discretion and confidentiality when working for a specific client or firm.

When choosing a freelance legal writer, make sure to have a look at a few sample legal writing undertaken by them in the past as it’ll give you a better idea about the capabilities of the writer.
