Legal Publications on Resume

Postby Vursz » Fri Apr 10, 2015 4:56 pm

Hi all, 1L here about to head into the OCI meat-grinder. I've had a bit of luck publishing in law reviews (I'm K-JD): currently I'm at two full-length articles and a book note, all in different journals.

Naturally, I don't want to look too overtly "academic" to employers, but in the past I've had interesting conversations with employers about the publications I've listed. Anyone have any suggestions regarding how best to highlight - but not over-highlight - these in a resume format?

I'd just add a "publications" and a "works in progress" (if applicable) section.

Be a boss and justify a 2 page resume with a publications section. Remember, resumes for law students are supposed to be 1 page. Unless you are a BOSS, call it a CV, and have enough legit things to make it 2 pages. Or be a super BOSS and make it 3 pages. Page 1 - grades, book awards, academic honors. 2 - legal employment, 3 - Publications!!!!! Hope this helps, I'm currently at a Resume with 4 legit lines and tons of fluff.
