Entry-Level Attorney The candidate will join the Affirmative Litigation Division. New attorneys in the Affirmative Litigation Division, working with senior attorneys, handle all aspects of litigation brought in state and federal court on behalf of the City and related entities. This includes investigating facts and developing legal theories; drafting briefs, affidavits, and other papers; arguing motions in court; taking and defending depositions; interviewing and preparing witnesses; and conducting settlement negotiations. New attorneys manage smaller cases themselves, with supervision, while playing a substantial role in larger cases managed by senior attorneys. Recent law graduates who have judicial clerkships may apply as well for the entry class following the term of their clerkship. This application should be used only by law students graduating between December 2017 and June 2018 and recent law graduates completing judicial clerkships in 2018.
