  About the Attorney General Honors Program

The two-year program allows participants to rotate through one of more of eight subject areas: civil rights; consumer financial protection; conviction review & innocence claims; data privacy & cybersecurity; environment; gun safety & gun violence; public integrity & corruption; and worker rights & labor enforcement.

Applicants also have the option of applying for the Solicitor Fellow, which was launched for the 2021 Honors Program.

Depending on their interests, the participants will be assigned to one or more of five divisions within the Office: the Division of Law (DOL), which brings civil enforcement actions and advises state agencies; the Division of Criminal Justice (DCJ), which prosecutes criminal cases; the Division on Civil Rights (DCR), which enforces state civil rights laws; the Division of Consumer Affairs (DCA), which protects consumers and investors from fraud; and the Office of Public Integrity & Accountability (OPIA), which investigates corruption and works to strengthen confidence in our criminal justice system. The Solicitor Fellow assignment will be within the Office of the Attorney General (OAG) and working directly with the State Solicitor.

Honors Programs attorneys will have opportunities to help formulate policy and legal strategy, investigate cases, draft legal pleadings, negotiate with opposing counsel, and argue in court or before administrative bodies. In addition, the Honors Program class will attend workshops and trainings that will help develop their legal skills and introduce them to the full range of work performed by the New Jersey Attorney General’s Office.

Applications for the 2021 Honors Program class are due Friday, October 16, 2020.
