If a legal recruiter sees one such spelling or grammatical mistake, you can rest be assured your CV will not be considered.
A profession where the placement of a comma can mean billion of dollars, no good lawyer will want to take a chance with a young graduate who makes such mistakes.
(If you are making such mistakes in a 2 page CV, you’ll surely mess up a 20 page contract).
Formatting is similarly important. Judges, if they find that the formatting of the pages is not proper, throw files at lawyers with gay abandon and/or ruthless anger.
In the age of freely available and inbuilt spell-checks and freely available grammar tools, these mistakes are simply intolerable.
And well, it’s your CV. It should show-case you as an individual and ‘highlight’ your skills and not kill your chances.
PS- Making such mistakes is the number 1 reason your CV is getting rejected all the time. Run a spell-check on it. Run it through an online grammar tool. Get it checked from a senior who has flawless English and then get it double and triple checked.
