The Honors Program attorneys gain exposure to a broad range of substantive legal work in one of the government's preeminent legal offices. Attorneys may also receive assignments from the regional offices, which typically involve trial work, including discovery, brief writing, and oral argument. Will typically carry a varied caseload from beginning to end: analyzing an investigative file, filing a complaint, engaging in negotiations and discovery, preparing briefs and arguing motions, and serving as lead counsel in cases that go to trial. Will receive select assignments from the national office divisions to complement their trial work or to expose them to practice areas usually handled by the national office. Regional office honors attorneys may also volunteer to rotate to the national office for a temporary assignment, usually lasting about three months. A third-year law student or post-graduate law clerk will be considered.
