DOJ Honors & SLIP Programs

As a reminder, the US Department of Justice Honors program has a strict deadline for its two largest recruiting programs -- September 8, 2009. The Honors Program is the only method through which the DOJ hires new law school graduates and the SLIP program is its paid program for rising 2Ls. You are encouraged to start this application early as it is very detailed. If you have questions about bidding divisions of the DOJ in the application, make an appointment with the Associate Director of Public Service Law Alisa Rosales.
