Hm.

Honestly, I deleted the description for my judicial internship. No idea if that's the right move, but I think it's typically very similar stuff across judicial internships (and even clerkships) that a description isn't really necessary.

Still, if you wanted to include something, it'd probably just be like "conducted legal research; drafted legal memoranda; observed court proceedings" and add as much (or as little) detail as you feel like.

Oh, and as a tip while interning for a judge and writing resumes: make sure to double-check your sentences (e.g., your thread title) for typos. ;)


thanks for the link that should be very helpful...and haha I just noticed the typo
