The collection of legal resume samples provided below, caters to the requirements of candidates for applying to positions such as attorney, legal secretaries, paralegal, law clerk, ombudsmane, etc. Almost, all jobs coming under this category are included in this section. The legal resume examples put up in this category, will help you understand how a CV pertaining to a legal job has to be written. Considering that the format of every CV remains more or less the same, you can choose any particular format you like; but the keywords to be included will change as per the job requirements. These 'keywords' are the specific skill sets or qualifications that the employer is looking for in the ideal candidate. You, thus, have to do some research while writing your professional synopsis.
Note: Do not use resume templates that are available in some word-processing programs. They are not formatted with a legal resume in mind and are not always readable by Georgetown Law's online interview scheduling program ().
