After college Resnick worked for his fraternity, traveling throughout the United States and Canada starting new fraternity chapters. Through his fraternity he was able to take a trip to Cuba and delivered humanitarian aid to the Jewish community. He then led a teen trip to Israel for one month.

Upon his return he entered law school at Arizona State University. Resnick decided that he loved to travel, and after his first year in law school, he spent the summer studying in Australia. After his second year in law school, he spent three weeks in the United Kingdom meeting family he had never met before starting a job with the county attorney's office.

After all of Resnick's extensive travels, he says he chose ASU "because I wanted a large university that is well known and has a lot of opportunity away from the law school. ASU was close to home but still far away, and it seemed to be the perfect fit. I was admitted very early, and after receiving a phone call from the dean, I knew it was for me."

Resnick says that he decided to become a lawyer because having a legal background would be very important no matter what he decided to do. He says that he enjoys having a grasp of information that most people have no idea about.

"It is nice to be able to research something and know exactly what I am looking for without any help."

Resnick says that his father has been his greatest influence while he has been in law school. His favorite courses have been tax courses because he feels that they are the most straightforward and, so far, practical.

Resnick spent one semester interning for the City of Scottsdale and will spend the upcoming summer interning with the Maricopa County Attorney's Office. He found his intern experience a little uneven but valuable nonetheless.

Resnick remarks, "The experience could have been better. I felt that I was just doing the research that the lawyers had already done. I was only there for a short time but definitely appreciated the contact I made and the friendliness of all the employees in the city office. I feel working for a government organization is much less stressful, as many of the attorneys had moved there after working for large private firms. They all seemed very happy and loved their jobs."

Q. What do you do for fun?
A. Spend as much time as possible with my friends. I enjoy traveling and exploring new things.
Q. What CD is in your CD player right now, or what was the last song you listened to?
A. The new Weezer song.
Q. What's the last magazine you read?
A. British Airways' in-flight magazine.
Q. What is your favorite TV show/movie?
A. TV show: How I Met Your Mother. Movie: Jurassic Park.
Q. Who is your role model?
A. Grandfather Leo, war hero and genuinely nice person.
Q. What do you think about the current job industry? Are you hopeful about finding a good law job?
A. The current job industry seems to be in rough shape, but I am not worried at all. ASU Law has a very good reputation and a high job-placement rate. I feel that ASU Law students will have no problem overcoming the overall economic downturn.
Q. Will you stay in the state you're in for a law job, or is another state more appealing at this point?
A. California is always appealing.
Q. What is something that most people don't know about you?
A. I am a member of the Screen Actors Guild.

Resnick's not sure yet what he wants to do after he graduates from law school, but he thinks working in finance might be interesting. Another possibility might be consulting with his legal skills. He says that he's always been very interested in mathematics and that combining his legal knowledge and math skills would be ideal for consulting in the financial industry.

Resnick is actively involved in various student organizations. He's president of the Jewish Law Students Association, secretary of the Small Business Law Students Association, secretary of the Sports and Entertainment Law Students Association, and a Student Bar Association representative. He's always been interested in sports and entertainment, so the Sports and Entertainment Association was a natural fit. He says that the SELSA puts on a large symposium each year and that that is their main event. Resnick thinks that it's important to be involved in student organizations while in school.

"Law school is only three years, and if all I do is study, 10 years from now I won't have many good memories of law school. Joining organizations is a way to get involved and give back to the school as well as a way to meet people."

Resnick's other interests and activities include sports and the film industry. He also has a keen interest in aviation. He says that his favorite law school memory so far is "finishing finals after my first year."

When asked if he has any advice for any of his law peers, Resnick says, "Relax!" Interesting advice from such an accomplished individual!
