    I would.

    Depending on your level of proficiency in French and Gujariti, you could write basic/working knowledge/conversational skills/proficiency... etc. Whatever is suitable.

    That's quite a coincidence, I also speak Gujurati & French but not fluently.

    I'd say fluent as it's clearer than proficient. For the other perhaps reasonable / good / working knowledge (if not so good).

    English - Fluent
    Urdu - Fluent
    French - Reasonable
    Gujurati - Reasonable

    Where you are, how you've got there, where you're trying to go and how you intend to get there. (ie "to get work experience at a law firm before i start university in september 2004. so that i can get some good idea")

    Don't call it objective just leave it without a title at the top of the CV.

    (Oh and don't write Curriculum Vitae across the top of the page - write your name instead...200 CVs all titled CV are a pain to sort through, 200 CVs all titled after the person they belong to are easier to track)

    You should explain fully *why* you're sending your CV in the covering letter you send with it.

    The Summary paragraph should just be a few sentences that explain your ultimate aims and the path you hope to follow to achieve them (along with a sentence or two explaining the path so far). Keep it short and quite general (ie "I hope to eventually become a lawyer/soliciter/barrister. I plan to achieve this through a degree course at university in 2005(?). At present I'm on a gap year/studying A levels and wish to use my time now to broaden my knowledge and experience of law.")
