Why Legal Transcription?

A legal transcription and legal word processor careers are a good fit for those interested in newer fields, grammar, legal terminology, working from home, typing, and listening. Since legal transcription is a newer career path, it is not tracked by the Bureau of Labor Statistics yet. According to Payscale, legal word processors or legal transcribers earn about $40,000 to $50,000 a year on average and many work from home, while some are freelancers. Legal transcriptionists are employed in various organizations, such as

  • Law firms
  • Corporate legal departments
  • Government agencies

Businesses require accurate legal records, so they hire employees to accurately transcribe and edit these documents. Employers highly values people with a good understanding of legal terminology, good grammar skills, and fast typing skills. As the new field continues to gain in popularity, the need for legal transcriptionists will continue to grow.
