Moritz Legal Proofing has two primary goals: to properly train our students in legal proofreading, and to
help them gain employment as legal proofreaders. Since our inception in 1986, we've been doing exactly that. Although our
class was initially taught in one day, we soon discovered students received higher test results and were better prepared for
the job market if we invested more time and materials, and kept the class sizes small. Our respected two-day format with
homework evolved in 1987, and our students have been passing those legal proofreading tests ever since!
If you do well, we do well. That is why we have the best reputation in the industry, and the longest list
of agency contacts available, including: Metropolitan Proofreaders, Forrest Solutions, Custom Staffing, Bond Staffing, New York Legal Temps, Wall Street Services, Forum Personnel, The Tuttle Agency, The Library Co-Op Inc., DeltaGroup, Peak Legal, Segue Staffing, Staff One , Metropolitan Staffing, Continental Personnel, AXION and Asset Staffing, Inc. In addition, many law firms hire students directly from our class.
