SEC Honors Program for Summer: 1L & 2L

The SEC is stepping up hiring in its Honors Program. Apply now through November 15!

The Summer Honors Law Program gives law and JD/MBA students the opportunity to become acquainted with the regulation of the securities markets and careers within the Commission.

Students have the opportunity to work for ten weeks during the summer at the Commission's Washington, D.C., headquarters or in one of its 11 regional offices nationwide including: New York, Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Denver, Fort Worth, Los Angeles, Miami, Philadelphia, Salt Lake City, and San Francisco.

Selection for employment is based on many elements of a candidate's background including academic achievement, law review or moot court experience, legal aid and clinical experience, and summer or part-time legal employment.

Please consult with Laura Murphy in CPD about your SEC resume. Your private sector resume almost certainly does not do what a federal resume needs to do to prove your qualifications.

For more information about the SEC Honors Program, see announcement number 10-387192-NW.
