U.S. Dept of Justice – Attorney General’s Honors Program- Webinar June 22nd and 23rd

The Attorney General’s Honors Program (HP) webinar will be hosted by the Office of Attorney Recruitment and Management and will provide an opportunity to learn about eligibility rules, the application process, and get answers to  questions about the HP.

This webinar is open to law students and recent graduates throughout the country, and we sincerely hope interested students and recent graduates can attend one of the two sessions, either June 22nd at 12:00 P.M. (EST) or June 23rd at 3:00 P.M. (EST). RSVP deadlines and instructions are included below and in the attached invitation.

Did you know? Judicial clerkships in any U.S. jurisdiction, state or federal, are qualifying eligibility-preserving activities that will allow graduates to apply again for the HP post-graduation. Graduates can have multiple clerkships or combine judicial clerkships with other prior or subsequent eligibility-preserving activities, e.g., fellowships, graduate law programs, subject to all other eligibility rules. Staff attorneys working for a court (and its judges) as a whole rather than for individual judges are also considered judicial law clerks for purposes of determining HP eligibility. Law school graduates must enter a full-time eligibility preserving activity not later than nine months following law school graduation to preserve Honors Program eligibility. More information on eligibility can be found at: https://www.justice.gov/legal-careers/honors-program-eligibility.
