Legal professionals can appreciate that fundamental rules of the English language never change. Hence we don’t have to update grammar, like the law, before sending out documents and email messages to courts, clients and colleagues. But we forget that the English language is complex and more difficult to write than speak, which results in common errors unless we carefully and continually proofread our craft.

It’s hard to gauge how many professionals proofread their written words before transmitting them. It is safe to say that not Not all them do so, judging from the content in my inbox and document store.
