Civil Division Employment Opportunities

The Civil Division of the Department of Justice, which represents the Federal Government in court, handles many of the most challenging and highest visibility cases. Its attorneys routinely litigate matters involving billions of dollars and highly-contentious issues of national importance. Backing up Civil Division attorneys are support staff, administrative professionals, and information technology specialists without whom the Civil Division’s work would be impossible. Currently-enrolled students can gain valuable experience working with the Civil Division in a variety of roles that can help guide or jumpstart their careers, whatever their career goals may be.
