Important Information About Our Real-Time Webinars

All webinar times are in Eastern Time. For more information on how EFA webinars are conducted, please see this page.

A medical-legal report is a document written by a medical expert that is used in a legal context, such as a medical malpractice or personal injury case. Medical-legal report editing is a little-known niche that offers a sizable source of potential work for editors and proofreaders with experience or interest in editing medical content. This webinar will introduce editors to the medical-legal field and explain what’s involved in providing quality assurance of reports for medical expert witnesses. 

The work in this big little niche is fascinating, rewarding, and abundant. If you have a deep interest in health and medicine and a love for fact-checking, you may want to make medical-legal editing your new specialism!
