How We Made Legal Brief Editing Better

As any brief writer knows, after you’re done drafting your brief, you’re never done.

Often, you’re editing up to the deadline: typos are a frequent source of frustration, and sometimes you might even need to write a new paragraph, or delete an entire section.

At this point, you’ve probably already sent your brief off to have the tables created, the formatting fine-tuned, and hyperlinks created for every authority you’ve cited to. Then what?

Automated updating and pagination

TypeLaw’s editor helps alleviate all of these problems. After you’ve sent us your brief, our comprehensive AI-driven editor automatically updates your tables and page numeration, allowing for as many edits as you would like, and it is available for free, with unlimited downloads of your brief at the click of a button.

Updating tables can be a pain, something that we realized early on; if you have a full draft of your brief ready, but realize that you need to include an additional authority or remove one, most brief writers have to regenerate the entire table of authorities, a process that can literally take hours.

Purpose-built for legal brief editing

In TypeLaw’s editor, however, we’ve realized that this is a huge source of frustration. Our editor is built from the ground up for editing a brief: any time you add, remove, or modify a heading or citation, it’s automatically reflected in the tables that were generated when we delivered your brief. This makes refining your brief an easy process—simply make your changes, and everything is reflected in the tables you’ve included. 

Additionally, you can make as many edits as you want, and our editor will know to update your brief accordingly. Even if you delete entire sections, we’ll keep track of it: not only will your brief’s tables be updated, but every page number and hyperlink will be shifted accordingly.

Unlimited PDF generation—for free

In a regular PDF of a brief (the file type requested by most courts) this would be a tedious process, and in most cases would lead to errors either in the tables or in the body of the brief itself. However, we regenerate the PDF of your brief with each change you make, leading to perfect tables, line numbers (for briefs that require pleading paper) and each hyperlink created at the exact place it should be.

For most brief processing services, an additional edit or change would be prohibitively expensive, leading to either excess costs or a brief being filed incompletely. However, TypeLaw’s editor is free for the lifetime of your brief: any changes you want to include, no matter the scope or timeline (even months after uploading your brief to us!) are completely free. You can make as many changes as you want, and download as many copies as you’d like, all included with the cost of your brief.

In pursuit of perfect digital briefs

We want to make sure that every brief is perfect, and by including the cost of editing a brief with our service, we hope that we can help all of our clients achieve that goal.
