Historically, each fall, OGC has hired law students who participated the previous summer in the DON Pathways Summer Law Clerk Internship Program as "Advance Commitments" for employment at the GS-9 level after graduation. This procedure--recruiting in advance to fill positions that are not vacant at the time the offer of employment is made--is very unusual within the Federal Government, but it has served OGC well for many years. Many of the best attorneys in OGC were hired under this program.

Evaluation of law student applicants in their last year of law school is made in the fall preceding graduation. Offers are extended by the end of the calendar year. Successful applicants are expected to begin working after graduation, but not later than October 1. If you are not attending a school where we conduct on-campus interviews (consult with your school's career services) and please send us a resume including your GPA, class standing, and whether you participate in law review, law journal or moot court. You may send information to:
