Legal Careers Overview
GAO's Office of General Counsel (OGC) serves GAO and the Congress, following the federal dollar wherever it goes. The scope and depth of our legal expertise is unparalleled in the federal government.
GAO attorneys provide legal advice and services, act as quasi-administrative law judges, serve as experts on federal appropriations law and are in-house counsel to GAO's management.
Entry-level attorneys join our two-year attorney development program, where you can start contributing immediately to GAO's work.
GAO provides a full range of benefits to all staff, including attorneys.
OGC has no open announcements for attorney positions or summer associate positions at this time, but will update this page as circumstances change. OGC does not provide responses to unsolicited resumes submitted through email@example.com, although we maintain resumes for a 1-year period in the event that a vacancy arises for which the applicant is qualified.
