Join Mary Merchant, Chief Counsel for HUD in Jackson, MS, for an information session on HUD’s General Counsel Honors Program.

HUD will hire 10-20 3Ls, LLMs and JLCs for its 1-year Legal Honors Program, which is HUD’s only recruitment program for new attorneys. Placed in headquarters and 9 field offices, candidates are hired at GS-11 and receive an array of benefits including loan repayment and flexible work schedules.  The program begins late September 2014.     Honors Attorneys will experience a 4-8 week rotation in OGS offices (for those in Headquarters) or field office divisions (for those in field offices).  Due to budget constraints, permanent employment is not guaranteed.

Remember, government agencies always want to know who YOU know.  Come to this program, and you will “know” Chief Counsel Mary Merchant!
