Employment - How much history to include

Postby kittykatt » Sun Sep 04, 2011 3:24 pm

I'm a non-traditional applicant, and I have a long employment history going back 20+ yrs to high school. How much history do I need to put on my application when my UG time ended in 1997? When applying for a job, I would only put relevant work experience, is it similar with my law school app? Just don't want to leave anything out and have an issue with the Bar down the line.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks!

I am in a similar situation and chose to include any work history after finidhing undergrad. Basically, HS jobs don't matter, much like pre-JD jobs won't matter once someone has passed the Bar. It has worked well for me... good luck!

Oops - should have read "finishing undergrad"!
