Securities and Exchange Commission: Chair’s Attorney Honors Program

The Chair’s Attorney Honors Program is a highly selective program that allows students to begin work as Law Clerks after graduation and before they pass the bar.  Upon being admitted to a state bar association, Law Clerks are eligible to be converted to Attorney positions.  This program is designed for third year law students, LL.M. students, joint degree JD/graduate students and those selected for a judicial clerkship as a means to secure future employment with the SEC.

You are eligible to apply for the Chair’s Attorney Honors Program if you are a law student who will graduate between October 1, 2014, and September 30, 2015; or you are a joint degree law student who will complete all academic requirements for both degrees and graduate from both programs between October 1, 2014, and September 30, 2015; or if you have been selected for, but have not started working at, a judicial clerkship.

The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission is looking for the best and brightest to join our team. Our mission includes advocating for investors who seek to secure a future for their family, providing guidance and regulations for the nation’s securities industry in an increasingly global market, and taking action with an eye toward promoting the capital formation necessary to sustain economic growth.

This vacancy is for a Law Clerk position with the SEC located in Washington, D.C. and throughout their regional office locations.  Many selections will be made from this announcement.

This announcement will close August 10th, 2014 or when the 500th application is received, whichever comes first.
