How to Construct a Legal Resume

I have probably reviewed more resumes than anyone in history. I started reviewing hundreds of resumes a week when people began submitting them online a few decades ago. When I started in legal placement, my fax machine was receiving resumes 24x7, and email (and then databases) were just getting started.

I have personally reviewed over 500,000 resumes of attorneys and law students who have applied to work with BCG Attorney Search. I’ve gotten jobs for thousands of attorneys by fixing their resumes. I know what to look for in a resume and, without tooting my own horn, I know how to make any resume shine. I estimate that I have reviewed the resumes of just about half of the practicing attorneys in the United States.
