“Attaching Certificates to your CV”
“I love me… but put you first” Mark Studin 2019
I have been recording with Dan Rosner, Esq. Who is a national expert on testifying and securing relationships with lawyers. This affects relationships with both plaintiff and defense lawyers and you never know where your career will bring you. Could you imagine a world where every one of you works for both sides and all either wants is the truth? I guess the real Santa Claus will show up first!!!
We discussed while recording the “Chiropractor in the Courtroom” course the importance of the certificates you get after you complete each CE course that we provide. From a legal admissibility issue, the certificate is no more or less important than your CV citation and not required in the courts. HOWEVER… from a perception perspective, they are HUGE, especially if you haven’t yet been confirmed in the courts as an expert through a Voir Dire hearing.
Therefore, after you complete each course, ensure that you download from the University the certificate of completion in your account.
NOTE: Over the last 3-4 months I uncovered that the certificates were not made available in the automated system. So please go back to your account and print these out, they should be there for you now.
Once you have the certificate, it should be placed at the back of your CV in date order. Ensure the lawyer sees them and even if the courtroom is not in question, it will go a long way towards the “perception” that you will be a “SLAM DUNK” in the courtroom. This is a significant piece of creating and maintaining relationships with lawyers.
This should not be counted as extra pages towards the Academy of Chiropractic Clinical Excellence Awards (CLICK HERE).
