The Federal Communications Commission’s Attorney Honors Program is a two-year employment and training program designed to introduce selected candidates to the field of communications law and policy. Honors Attorneys quickly gain valuable experience and benefit from a wide variety of learning experiences. Attorneys at the FCC draft decisions in adjudicatory and rulemaking matters, work with internal and external constituencies to resolve complex policy issues before the agency, participate in international negotiations, represent the FCC in dealings with other government agencies, Congress and the private sector, and defend FCC decisions in the federal courts. Additionally, Honors Attorneys benefit from a specialized training and career-development curriculum designed specifically for the program.
You are eligible to apply during the fall application window for the 2022 Attorney Honors Program if you are a:
- Current law student who will graduate in the spring or summer of 2022;
- Graduate law student who will complete your course of study by the summer of 2022;
- Federal, state, or municipal judicial clerk serving during the 2021-22 judicial term.
Selection for the Honors Program is highly-competitive, and the FCC reviews many facets of a candidate’s background, including academic achievement, writing skills, law review and/or moot court experience, clinic or extracurricular activities, and interest in government service and/or the communications sector.
