Brandeis Honor Attorney Program

A two-year fellowship designed to provide exceptional law students and recent graduates with early, substantive opportunities to use and develop their legal skills and make a difference in the lives of American consumers. Through the course of the program, Honors Attorneys will be given increasingly complex assignments designed to build their legal skills and increase their ability to support the CFPB’s mission. Honors Attorneys will be placed in specific Bureau offices, but will also have opportunities to rotate into different offices to develop additional skills and collaborate on projects across the Bureau. In addition, the program includes training opportunities to enhance a new attorneys’ writing, analytical thinking, and other legal skills, as well as their understanding of the Bureau’s mission and work. The application period begins July 22, 2015 and will close on September 9, 2015. Learn more and apply.

Application tips

As we work to attract the next generation of government leaders, we understand the federal application process can be challenging. Federal resumes require more detail than standard resumes. The most effective résumés for federal jobs clearly and specifically relate back to how your skills and experiences align to the selection criteria in the vacancy announcement. This is one place where multiple page résumés can perform better than clean, one-page résumés. You should always tailor your résumé for any job application.
