Does a separate publication section just for a LR note come across as douchey? Should it just be as a bullet point under the LR line under education? I'm curious as to how it comes across to clerks who are reviewing hundreds of these resumes.
You could place it under an other category at the bottom; or under your the law review entry. This really just depends on how much work experience and other items you have on your resume (i.e., if you are K-JD you can probably waste more space than if you worked for a decade). As far as how it's viewed, I have no idea (only a soon to be a clerk). I imagine like most things, however, that all things being equal between two candidates, it helps. I doubt that its going to overcome a non-competitive GPA for a given judge, nor a lack of strong recommenders; but, it certainly can only help.
As a side note (not directed at above), I've noticed that people are starting to get far more demanding of GTL's advice -- he's doing a great service by taking the time to answer questions. Don't bump something instead of looking to see whether he answered it.
