 Drafting Legal Resumes & Cover Letters for 1Ls


Date: 10/09/2017
Time: 11:50 AM to 12:50 PM
Contact: Office of Career Planning

Location: South Hall 0225

Description: Resumes are like the "fact section" of a brief and a good cover letter is part of the argument. They seem straight forward enough, but there is an art to drafting a good one. After attending this session, you will know how to convert the excellent resume you used to apply to law school into a "legal resume" that you will use for applying for 1L summer jobs and how to think about drafting a persuasive cover letter. Three sessions are offered and 1Ls are encouraged to attend one of the three sessions.
