The following are full-time and summer 2012 opportunities for rising 2Ls and 3Ls with the U.S. Department of Justice. Make sure to apply early!

The Attorney General’s Honors Program (HP) is Justice’s recruitment program for entry-level attorneys, and is the only way Justice hires graduating law students.  Judicial law clerks, full-time graduate law program (LLM) students, and law school graduates in qualifying full-time legal fellowships are also eligible.  The first opportunity for law students to apply for HP is the summer before their third year of law schoolThis year, the on-line centralized electronic application opens July 25, 2011, and closes September 6, 2011.  Participating Justice offices and components will be listed at: www.justice.gov/oarm/arm/hp/hpparticipatingcomp.htm.

The Summer Law Intern Program (SLIP) is Justice’s competitive recruitment program for compensated summer internships. Law students who have completed at least one full semester of law school by the application deadline are eligible to apply; however, the majority of SLIPs are second-year law students who work at Justice the summer between their second and third years of law school.  But the SLIP is also open to recent graduates between graduation and the start of a judicial clerkship or full-time qualifying legal fellowship. This year, the on-line centralized electronic application opens July 25, 2011, and closes September 6, 2011. Thus, current 1Ls (i.e., rising 2Ls) who are interested in a paid internship for Summer 2012should apply by September 6, 2011. Participating Justice offices and components will be listed at: www.justice.gov/oarm/arm/sp/spcomponents.htm
