WordRake for
Paralegal Programs

“I have been a huge fan of WordRake for several years now. I see a lot of software programs in my line of work, but very few have impressed me the way WordRake does. This is game-changing software! Schools should be using this technology and putting it in the hands of every legal student from day one!”
Douglas Lusk President/CEO, National Society for Legal Technology

WordRake is the first and only automated in-line editing software for professionals.

Develop paralegals and legal support staff who are excellent communicators.

Let’s Collaborate

We look forward to collaborating with you to find ways to incorporate WordRake into your programming. Contact us to start co-creating your program now!

Spread the Word

As part of this program, WordRake will issue a press release to announce the collaboration, and we hope participating schools will do the same. Assuming you’re happy with the results, we hope to publish a case study for each participating school.

License Distribution

Our goal is for everyone to use WordRake and to feel its benefits. We’ll work with you to find the right method to distribute WordRake licenses, but we believe adoption and benefits will be higher if we can directly distribute licenses to faculty and students. We will keep all email addresses confidential and not use them for marketing purposes. Other license distribution options include a self-serve sign up page, or working with your IT department for distribution.

The Suffolk Model

In 2019, we worked with Suffolk to develop our program model. Check out these examples.

Here’s what Legal Professionals say about WordRake

Founder, The Paralegal Writer™

WordRake editing software is indispensable for any legal writer. Even if you think you’re a great writer already, it can quickly open your eyes to writing improvements you might not have considered. The download experience was seamless and the Help feature is very user-friendly, which is golden for a non-techie person like me. The WordRake tab appears at the top of each Word document with easy-to-identify icons for simplicity, brevity, and complexity; these features help me adjust my editing depending on the type of document I am creating. It gives me quick, accurate solutions to make writing clear and concise, suggesting exactly which words to remove or how to rephrase. WordRake can help paralegals become better communicators. I can’t believe I ever edited without this software!

Concise, professional writing skills require constant reinforcement and WordRake delivers. WordRake teaches better writing habits by offering editing suggestions that you must review and accept or reject. It’s exactly the feedback and training I searched for when I was a paralegal drafting documents with little guidance. Now that I run a company dedicated to helping firms become efficient, I recommend WordRake licenses for everyone!

For legal writing professors, a top priority is making sure paralegal students graduate not just with knowledge of the law but with valuable practical skills that will get them hired by law firms. WordRake helps students improve their writing abilities, leading to well-drafted legal documents and improved legal support in general.

I was so enormously impressed, I instantly bought three-year licenses for every lawyer, manager, and legal assistant on my staff.

I evaluate and personally use a lot of software for legal professionals, and I always recommend WordRake without reservation. With its ability to work in Word and Outlook and on PC's and Macs - it's one of the few products I can recommend across the board. It can make any document clearer and better. It’s simply unmatched, best-in-class technology for legal professionals.

Write with Confidence.
