LoR, Academic?

My professor wants my resume, however I have 2 other recs that speak about stuff on my resume, should I supply him with an Academic resume instead, with my major papers and projects on it? Any advice is appreciated, Thanks.

I'd give him both resumes.  I found this sort of confusing with my recommenders too.  I didn't want them focusing on my resume since the law schools are going to see my resume anyway.  It gives your recommender a better idea of how you spend your time though and what you commit yourself to outside of class time.  You could always ask your recommender to place the focus on your academics.  Make sure you give him papers or assignments from classes you took with him so he can get a 1st hand look at your academic abilities.
