Listing Future Law Journal Position on Resume

Postby random5483 » Thu Feb 16, 2012 3:43 pm

How should I list a law review editor position for next year on my resume? I am starting to send out applications for 3L Fall externships.

Thanks.

I have the same question about SA positions; I know my SA will help me get a gig because of the practice area connection, but I have no idea what this would look like.

Yes and yes. For the journal, just list the position. For the SA, be clear with the date that it isn't something you have do yet and do not put details of what you will be doing.

How do I explain that my duties on the journal in the specific editor position does not begin till next year. With an SA position, you add a "Commencing Summer 2012" line on the dates involved (that is what I have done after talking to the career office at my school). How do I do this for a journal though?
