Usually it's a separate document. Maybe as a space filler? Still, I'd err on the side of having it on a separate sheet.

CSO told me to put them on resume, so I did. FWIW family member who did hiring for a large Federal office said this was absolutely moronic.

Read the second sentence. CSOs say all sorts of moronic things. Just because they say so doesn't mean it's ok. If you know actual practicing attorneys who are involved in hiring or looking at resumes on a regular basis, go with their opinion over a CSO. Remember, the job of the CSO is to make their stats look good, not to make you look good (and if you looking good could possibly make your peers not look as good in comparison, they will go for mediocre cookie cutter advice most of the time).

I don't think I like your tone. Maybe go back to lurking?
