Publication on Resume

Postby Anonymous User » Mon Jan 16, 2012 4:52 pm

Found out recently that my journal comment was selected for publication with another school's journal. Just wondering what you guys think is the best way to indicate/format this on my resume.

Also, I'm assuming it's worth sending an update/new resume out to any firms that I have outstanding applications with/have interviewed with?

Congrats!

Perhaps have a section entitled "Publications", and have a Bluebook cite of the article.
If you only have one publication, then you could stick it in your law school education section.

My school suggests either a "Publication" section between "Education" and "Experience", or adding a bullet to the heading about your law review membership with "PUBLICATIONS" in big bold letters.

I put mine after experience, but that's because I have extensive experience. It all depends on what's more impressive - put the best section near the top. I'd not put the publication under the school if there is space to have a separate section.

Before my note hit print, I had it as a bullet point under my entry for Law Review that just saws: Publication: Your Name, Note/Comment, Your Title, (Volume #) Your L. Rev. ____ (forthcoming 2011/2)
