Each summer, the Washington State Attorney General's Office invites qualified third-year law students, as well as judicial clerks of the appellate and federal courts, to apply for permanent, entry-level attorney positions via the Honors Program. The application deadline to apply for the 2021 Honors Program was August 22, 2021. Accordingly, we are unable to entertain additional applications. That said, the Office does offer a lateral recruitment program (open to attorneys of all experience levels) year-round. To apply for an AAG position via the lateral program, one must be licensed to practice law in Washington State and otherwise meet each posting's qualifications criteria.


For questions about the AGO's Honors Program, you are encouraged and welcome to contact Attorney Recruitment Administrator Letrice Tobin at Letrice.Tobin@atg.wa.gov
