City Attorney Fellowship Open!

The City Attorney Fellowship is an opportunity to work for one year post graduation for the Denver City Attorney’s office. Through collaboration between the Sturm College of Law and DCAO, these positions are available exclusively to members of Sturm College of Law’s Class of 2020 (students graduating between September 1, 2019 and August 31, 2020). Applications are due April 6, 2020. 

There will be up to two DU Fellows in this year’s program, assigned to individual sections at the discretion of the DCAO.

There are a wide range of opportunities at the Denver City Attorney’s Office, from prosecution to child welfare to environmental, contract, and airport law. You can learn more about each section here, and in the postings in Symplicity.

Students should apply separately to each section they are interested in working for. There is a posting in Symplicity for each section (Job #s 21885, 21886, 21887, 21888, 21889, 21890, 21891). You can submit the same resume and writing sample to each section, but should have an individualized cover letter explaining your interest in each section. Reach out to the CDO for advice about which sections to apply for (and how many).

This Fellowship is a full-time position for one year.

Fellows must be members of Sturm College of Law’s Class of 2020 and must take the bar exam by July 2020. Fellows who do not pass the bar on their first attempt may need to transition to different responsibilities or possibly out of the program, at the discretion and in accordance with the policies of the DCAO.

Applicants must submit a resume, cover letter, and writing sample through Symplicity for each of the divisions in which they are interested (i.e.,each applicant must submit one application for each division in which the applicant is interested). Applications are due April 6, 2020. 

You may apply to as many of the DCAO sections as you are interested in. Each is listed separately in Symplicity.

Reach out to the CDO with questions, for advice, and for review of your materials.
