Is editing service allowed by law schools?

Do law schoosl allow applicants to use the editing service for their personal statement? Does anyone know about that?

Generally yes. Check specific instructions. From Duke:


The personal statement, optional essays, and all other writing samples must be your own work. This means that the ideas and expressions originated with you, and you wrote all drafts and the final product. It does not preclude asking family members, friends, pre-law advisors, and others for proofreading assistance or general feedback.

Yes, but some may ask whether you took a class on the LSAT/had your PS professionally edited.
