I recommend googling "sample law school resumes" or "sample legal resumes." I did this when I was preparing my resume, and a ton of things came up, especially links to the Career sites of law schools around the country. Most of them give a ton of sample resumes. I found it really helpful to look at how other people phrased things and even what they emphasized the most. It also gave me ideas I never would have thought of. For example, attending depositions is a great experience that shows employers that you are familiar with varied legal proceedings (not just writing memos) and have (maybe) some client relation skills.

Good luck!
