Peter A Allard School of Law

Resume & Cover Letter Seminar

Are you preparing summer or articling applications? Legal resumes and cover letters have a unique format and may look different than application materials you’ve drafted in the past. What are legal employers looking for in candidates and how can you make your application stand out in a good way? Get a general overview of the CSO’s recommended format for your applications and learn about the common pitfalls and tips for highlighting your skills at this informative seminar presented by the CSO. Then, draft your materials and book a Resume or Cover Letter Review appointment on ACE to get personalized advice!

We also recommend reviewing our Resume and Cover Letter Guide (available in ACE’s Resource Library) and using VMock to refine your resume.
