Resume review please?

Postby fisheatbananas » Thu May 07, 2015 2:24 am

Hi, I'm a 0L looking for any current law students or graduates that'd be willing to review my resume for me. It'd be as a draft to use when I become a 1L, not for applications since I've already committed to a school for the fall. Please pm me, thank you in advance.

It's a waste of time, your school will provide you with a lot more information on resumes throughout your first semester.

Harvard has a handful of resume samples with some quick advice available online if you’re really looking to do some work on it now. Just Google Harvard Law Resume

Thanks for your advice. I've actually been looking at Harvard as well as Georgetown's sample resumes, so it's good to hear I'm on the right track.

Seriously though, you're wasting your time, you're gonna have to redo this anyway. It's May, go outside and enjoy what life you have left.

A friend of mine told me that if you're going to do anything to prepare for 1L, finishing a draft of your resume is not a bad idea. There's not a huge window between Career Services being allowed to talk to you and the opening day for 1L applications, and you're going to be busy with other shit.
