I don't have anything that pertains to law school on my resume (I'm coming from a scientific research background), and I was told by admissions people that it doesn't matter.  Just include what you did that was impressive, no matter what it pertains to.  Also, if you're going to go over a page, use two full pages, rather than a page and a half or so. 

ok cool, i'll stick with my one pager, thanks everybody.

You may want to stick with the two-pager and show it to career services to see what they suggest. I know my career services cut mine down for me into one page instead of me having to do it myself when I had no idea what was important.


yeah i still have the full two pager, i was planning on taking both copies to career services to see what they suggest. i just figured if i get it down to one page now it'll be easier to finalize later.
...man, you was who you was before you got here

For me they clumped similar positions together and had about a one sentence description (for the less recent positions)
