The online applications for the Department of Justice Attorney General’s Honor Program and the Summer Law Intern Program (SLIP) are now available at http://www.justice.gov/careers/legal/
Attorney General’s Honor Program - The Attorney General’s Honors Program is Justice’s competitive, centralized recruitment program that is the only way for new attorneys (i.e., third-year law students and students who enter judicial clerkships, graduate law programs, or qualifying fellowships within 9 months of law school graduation) to enter Justice in an attorney position. The application deadline is September 6, 2011.
SLIP - The Attorney General's Summer Law Intern Program is Justice's competitive, centralized recruitment program for compensated summer internships. The majority of SLIP hires are second year law students who work at Justice the summer between their second and third years of law school. The SLIP is also open to recent graduates between graduation and the start of a judicial clerkship or full-time qualifying legal fellowship. The application deadline is September 6, 2011.
Volunteer Legal Internships are available during the academic year and the summer. Postings for volunteer internships can be found at the above site as well as Symplicity, PSLawNet.org and through direct outreach to DOJ contacts. The deadlines are fluid throughout the year.
