Job Searching Research Guide

This guide outlines library resources available at Georgetown University Law Library which will help you investigate potential employers and prepare for job interviews.

Government (Federal, State & Municipal)

Here in DC, there are many more government job opportunities available for lawyers than in any other part of the country. Be aware, however, that the timetable for most government jobs moves much more slowly than other types of legal jobs, so be sure to factor the appropriate amount of time into your search if you‰re hoping to secure a government position. State and municipal government jobs should also be considered. The law library has a number of resources, both electronic and in print, to assist you in this research. The Office of Public Interest and Community Serviceshould be consulted for guidance on locating specific job openings, but these resources can assist you as you prepare to interview and investigate potential employers.
