DOJ Summer and Post-Graduate Employment Opportunities

The United States Department of Justice’s Summer Law Intern Program (SLIP) and Honors Program provide opportunities for summer and post-graduate positions.  More information about both programs is below.  Each year, UM law students have been selected for both programs and we look forward to continuing this trend this year.

The Summer Law Intern Program (SLIP) is the Department’s competitive recruitment program for compensated summer internships. Selection for employment is based on many elements of a candidate’s background including academic achievement, law review or moot court experience, legal aid and clinical experience, and summer or part-time legal employment. The Department also considers specialized academic studies (including undergraduate and post-graduate degrees), work experience, and extracurricular activities that directly relate to the work of the Department.  For more information about the Summer Law Intern Program, visit the Program’s website.

The Attorney General’s Honors Program is the only way that the Department hires entry-level attorneys. Selection for employment is based on many elements of a candidate’s background including academic achievement, law review or moot court experience, legal aid and clinical experience, and summer or part-time legal employment. The Department also considers specialized academic studies (including undergraduate and post-graduate degrees), work experience, and extracurricular activities that directly relate to the work of the Department.  For more information about the Honors Program, visit the Program’s website.

How to Apply: To apply for either program, you must complete the online application form between July 25 and September 8, 2009 (midnight EST).  Applications are available online.

The US Department of Justice will be on campus on Friday, August 21 at 12:30 p.m. in the Student Lounge to speak with students about both programs.  If you are interested in either program, be sure to attend!
