are legal resumes dramatically different? ALso, for those going straight through undergrad-law is it wise to remove info from highschool? ANy sites online that give examples of legal resumes if they are dramatically different?
They aren't dramatically different, but you typically have a section for "legal experience" once you have law-related jobs. I know some people who kept high school information, but ONLY if it was a really, really important high school and it is worth acknowledging. For example, one of my friends went to some private boy's school in the town he wants to work in, and apparently the law firm he wants to work for likes people who went to this high school. If it's just your run-of-the-mill public high school, definitely take it and any other high school activities off your resume.
You could probably find stuff online if you search for legal resumes, and your school's career services should give you more specific information at the beginning of the year.
