FOR FALL 2015 ATTORNEY HONORS PROGRAM
Washington, D.C. - The Federal Communications Commission today announced that it
will accept applications from graduating law students and current judicial clerks for its Fall 2015
Attorney Honors Program. The application window opens on August 1, 2014.
Attorneys at the FCC work on cutting-edge legal and policy issues in the communications
and technology arenas. They promote the deployment of high-speed broadband
communications; protect the rights of consumers; promote access to communications services for
all Americans, including Americans with disabilities; review major mergers and acquisitions;
and promote public safety and homeland security.
Through the Attorney Honors Program, the FCC recruits law graduates to the agency and
the field of communications. The FCC encourages law students in their final year of study and
judicial clerks with superior academic credentials and an interest in communications law to apply
for the Fall 2015 class. Applications must be received by midnight September 28, 2014;
incomplete or late applications will not be considered. All Attorney Honors Program
participants will be located at the FCC’s headquarters in Washington, DC.
Interested persons should submit a cover letter, resume, official or unofficial law school
transcript, writing sample and list of three references via email to Honors.Program@fcc.gov.
