U.S. Department of Justice Offers Program for Judicial Clerks

The U.S. Department of Justice is offering an Honors Program for judicial clerks. The entry-level program is for recent law school graduates working as clerks in state courts.

Various U.S. Attorneys’ Offices each year hire entry-level lawyers through the Attorney General’s Honors Program. Touted as “the largest and most prestigious” federal entry-level attorney hiring program, the U.S. Department of Justice said it will help open career doors for the clerks.

The jobs are limited to graduating law students and recent law school graduates who entered judicial clerkships or those who are in a graduate law program or qualifying legal fellowship and who meet other requirements.

The judicial clerks can apply online for the Honors Program through Sept. 8.  Selected candidates will be interviewed in September and extended offers will start in November.
