2Ls and 3Ls: Application deadlines for many federal positions are in the fall. Prepare your materials as soon as possible.
Some students who are interested in Federal Government employment during law school or after graduation find the process of locating and applying for positions daunting. We have a resource to help.
To make available information more accessible, we have acquired The Government Honors and Internship Handbook, a comprehensive listing of current federal hiring programs for law students. The Government Handbook also includes a short section on state and local government offices that are hiring.
Updated in August each year (and revised as necessary throughout the year), the Handbook is an outstanding resource for public service-oriented students. Here are a few examples of the government agencies planning to hire:
- Central Intelligence Agency
- Environmental Protection Agency
- Department of Education
- Federal Communications Commission
- Department of the Interior
- Small Business Administration
The Handbook is available in the Career Center and online. Look in Symplicity (Resources; Document Library; Passwords to Online Resources) for the link and password information. Please do not share the password with any non-Oregon Law students; this resource is available only to students attending subscribing schools.
