Employment Law Attorney Resume

An employment law attorney resume is written by a person of law whose specialty is to represent his clients, who may be employees or employers, in the court of law regarding issues of harassment, breach of contract, discrimination, wages, etc. There are several laws and their innumerable sections of which the labor attorney needs to keep track of. They may also many a times push for new amendments concerning the existing laws, in case these laws feel obsolete in the rapidly changing work culture. While doing so, they keep the interests of their clients in mind and work towards bringing in suitable and satisfactory negotiations for them. They continuously protect the rights of the employees and employers through their endeavors. Their work also consists of expanding the realm of laws to cover more specific types of cases, including immigrant labor/ employee laws and promoting safety standards for the workers across all the industries. All of this includes a lot of research and skills in dealing with various kinds of people.

In terms of education, an employment law attorney requires a undergraduate degree. Having this degree in the field of political science, history or English will add to your knowledge and will also contribute towards your intellectual growth. Further, a masters degree in law with specialization in labor law is absolutely important to become an employment law attorney. An applicant can get into a law school by appearing for the LSAT (Law School Admission Test). This is a necessary national level entrance exam to many law schools that come under its purview of acceptance criteria. The completion of a masters in law earns the student the Doctor of Jurisprudence (J.D.) degree. After the successful completion of this degree, and before starting the practice, the applicants need to pass the state bar exams in order to earn their practicing license (which is essential for every working attorney).
