Everything You Need to Know About Government Honors Attorney Programs

For the Class of 2017:

Attorney positions in government (the federal government especially) can be tough to come by. One major exception: government honors programs. Each year, many government departments recruit and hire for a limited number of openings reserved for recent graduates. Competition for these programs is often intense, but grades are only one part of what the agencies usually look for. Commitment to working in government, subject-matter expertise and/or experience, and long-term potential are all important factors, so everyone interested is encouraged to apply.

Hiring for government honors positions varies by agency, but many start the process now (late summer, early fall) for the coming year! So if you're interested, the time to start paying attention is now!

You can find extensive listings for government honors programs (including federal, state and local), broken out for you by agency and by deadline, here: http://arizonahandbooks.com/u/ucdlaw.  Please contact Career Services for the password.

For the Class of 2018:

Many government agencies offer summer "honors" internships to law students for their second summer, but hiring starts early: late summer and early fall of the preceding year. If you'd like to work for a federal, state or local government agency during summer 2017, we strongly encourage you to begin perusing listings and applying now. You can find those listings broken out for you by deadline and agency, here: http://arizonahandbooks.com/u/ucdlaw.  Please contact Career Services for the password.

As always, please email or come see Timothy Griffiths (tgriffiths@ucdavis.edu) in the Career Services Office for more details or if you have questions!
