The brochure and application for HUD’s Office of General Counsel Legal Honors program for 2015 Law School graduates are now available online here

The U.S Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Office of General Counsel (OGC) is now accepting applications for our 2015-2016 Legal Honors Program.  The Legal Honors Program is the hiring vehicle for entry-level attorneys for the Office of General Counsel.  Through this program, OGC recruits the most talented and committed law school graduates interested in playing a vital role in helping HUD accomplish its mission to “create strong, sustainable, inclusive communities and quality, affordable homes for all.”

Legal Honors is the entry level position for attorneys at HUD.  HUD typically hires between 10 and 20 new attorneys each year for its offices in Washington, D.C., and across the United States.  At the completion of the 14-month Legal Honors Program, participants who have gained bar admission typically graduate to attorney positions at the agency.  Additional information regarding the nature of our legal work and office locations can be found in the brochure.  Attorneys at HUD work in a broad range of matters, including program advice, program enforcement, civil rights, litigation, real estate finance and other transactional matters, personnel, labor and procurement.  Information about our programs is available at

The application deadline is September 5, 2014, and that is a firm deadline.
