Video: Your expertise starts today


What will your resume look like in four years’ time?

Ron Marmer, past chair of the Section of Litigation, says what you do now can help you build your track record — and help define your sphere of expertise on your resume.

“Think about how the total resume will look,” Marmer says in this video from the Section of Litigation. “Does it look like you just wrote on a whole bunch of different topics? Or does it look like you were actually developing some expertise in a particular area? Does it look like you’re concentrating your professional efforts towards a particular goal?

“Those are the kinds of things you could be doing right now.”

Taking advantage of publishing and subcommittee leadership opportunities through associations is one way to build your reputation and your credibility in the line of law that interests you. The ABA Section of Litigation has many just for you.
