Lawyer CV


Lawyer CVs are a necessary part of securing a job as a lawyer. Recruiters in law firms look at several CVs in a single day and therefore make decisions in split seconds. Your CV needs to stand out if you want an employer to take a second look at it.

Show the employer that you are innovative in your approach to solving problems. You can do this in the achievements section by referring to cases you may have handled in the past and how you approached them. Use your CV to argue out your case as to why you truly deserve to work in the firm or company to which you are applying.
