Having a well-written resume and cover letter can make the difference between being hired or ignored.

Here’s what something they don’t teach you in law school: How to write a résumé and cover letter that’ll help you win your case for landing a job. But this is certain: You’ll never get the job without them: No law firm job is an easy win and it’ll take more than telling a good story and the write verbs and adjectives, but your résumé and cover letter are your best way to make a memorable first impression. Not only will they help you get your foot in the door, they’ll also be a vital point of discussion during your law firm interview.
