Is Your Resume Up To Date?

Students often forget the importance of updating their resume with new honors and activities as they progress through law school.  Joined a new organization?  Include it under your “Activities” in law school.  Or maybe you now have a leadership position in an organization already on your resume.  Starting a new internship this semester for additional work experience?  Add it to your legal experience with a detailed description of your duties.  Have your phone number or address changed?  Do you need to change the style of your resume now that you have more material on it?  You should constantly revise your resume as you progress through law school.  If you have questions about whether an item is appropriate for your resume, contact the CSD or stop by the atrium on Coffee Wednesday from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. for a quick response.
