As a lawyer, attorney, paralegal, legal secretary, mediator, corporate counsel, or court reporter you want your legal resume to stand out and promote your qualifications in the best and most impressive way. This legal resume template for Microsoft Word is the solution that will make building your legal resume fast and easy.
This legal resume template stands out because it was custom-designed by a professional resume writer with decades of experience. The template was based on real-world, successful legal resumes.
The job market for people in the legal profession can be very competitive. To increase your chances of landing an interview for the job you want, you need to have a well-written legal resume that showcases your skills and experience.
But writing a legal resume from scratch can be time-consuming and daunting. That's where using a legal resume template can be especially helpful. With a legal resume template, all you need to do is fill in your information and save it as a .DOCX or PDF file.
There are many benefits to using a legal resume template. Perhaps the most obvious benefit is that it saves you time. The premium resume template in our Barristers Collection has all of the necessary sections and formatting in place. All you need to do is input your own information.
Another benefit of using our premium resume template for law professionals is that it will make your resume look exceptionally polished and professional. And if you're up against other candidates with similar qualifications, looking polished and professional could be the deciding factor in whether or not you get the job.
Beyond eye appeal, like all our resume templates, this legal resume is ATS friendly too. ATS compatibility is critically important when you are applying for any jobs. Your resume will usually be stored in an applicant tracking system (ATS) that will be used to track you as a candidate throughout the hiring process. Most of the resume templates available for sale on the internet are NOT compatible with ATS and the content will become jumbled when entered into an ATS. Beware of these templates! They will do your job search more harm than good.
The Barristers Collection includes an optional bundle of matching documents, including a resume addendum with prompts for additional legal qualifications and skills, a professional biography, references for legal jobs, and even a cover letter template.

Here are just some of the many color schemes available when you use our Barrister resume template and the other matching career templates in the collection.

WHAT OUR TEMPLATE USERS SAY
Appearances matter, even with the written word, and how a document looks can make an immediate impact on the decision to read it or toss it aside. I train and mentor many excellent resume writers who have mastered the art of crafting highly effective resume content, but who lack the basic MS Word skills to create eye-catching, ATS compatible and uniquely branded documents. Distinctive Templates are the perfect solution for easily transforming well-written content into works of art that capture attention, generate interest, and motivate the recipient to read every word.
While I primarily write resumes from scratch for each of my clients, I have also used Michelle’s templates and received great feedback. I find the templates are especially helpful to organize my thinking for those clients who have an overabundance of important information that still must fit in an ATS-friendly, 2-page format without looking cluttered or disorganized.
When I was starting out with resume writing a little over a year ago, one of the most intimidating aspects was visual design of resumes. I didn’t want to have to learn graphic design to stand out—and with these templates, I didn’t need to! I was a little hesitant at first because I thought the templates might be too rigid or generic. In actuality, they are incredibly flexible and easy to play around with. I can customize any template with my client’s favorite colors in just two clicks—which means they never look exactly the same, even if I use them for multiple clients. Using the templates means I can just do what I do best—write—and then plug the text right into the appropriate section. It saves me literal HOURS of work and hassle. One of the best parts about purchasing from Michelle is that she is extremely responsive to questions. There’s a private Facebook group where she records screen share tutorials about how to switch up certain elements in the templates, and she's always been responsive to my emailed questions. My clients are completely thrilled with the unique, modern design of their resume, and I’m thrilled that I'm saving time and don’t have to learn graphic design!
I love Michelle’s resume templates! The designs are eye-catching and easy to use. I highly recommend these templates for anyone who finds that designing a creative, contemporary formatted resume is a challenge. They’re a huge time-saver.
I used the “Pivot” template to create a combination functional/chronological resume for my first big client. Her words when she saw the finished product: “THIS IS AMAZING!” I’m a writer, not a designer. My resumes aren’t unprofessional, but they needed a “wow” factor – and now they have it. Thank you, Michelle, for offering such affordably priced tools!
