There are a number of firms that market software designed to service
the needs of the legal field. Within law firms themselves, I would think
there is next to nothing, as lawyers write their own briefs and filings
and (if they're smart) have legal secretaries with good language skills
correct their grammar and spelling. My wife used to be a legal
secretary/office manager, and tells me that most lawyers have even
worse writing skills than most tech writers think engineers do.

Is there anyone on the list who works in the legal arena? I met a young
woman today who is thinking about writing as a profession, is interested
in law, and is wondering what sort of preparation that might involve and
what the work is like. I've strictly been a technology and business
process person, so I'm not sure what advice to give about work in the
legal area.

Any information is much appreciated.
