Attorney resumes are a dime-a-dozen; no two will match. Consider an attorney resume a legal resume; that is, full of opposing arguments. Fully representative of the legal process: " Justice is Blind..."
Here is a fact: Lawyers are everywhere, within every sector of commerce. Heck, even the US Army's Judge Advocate Corps (JAG) are constantly writing and re-writing the rules of war.
Now that would really look impressive on your attorney resume..."Single-handedly re-wrote the rules of war after September 11, 2001, while serving in the Judge Advocate Corps."
