The Attorney General's Stephanie Lovell Honors Program

Applications will be accepted between Monday, August 14, 2023, and Monday, October 2, 2023.

The Attorney General’s Office is seeking entry-level attorneys for its 2024 Stephanie Lovell Honors (Fellowship) Program in the Boston office.  The Program offers entry-level attorneys the unique opportunity to engage in the practice of law and policy in the largest public sector legal office in the Commonwealth. 

Fellows receive training and guidance from experienced attorneys to enhance proficiency and develop skills. Through the Fellowship Program, new attorneys will launch their legal careers by enriching their legal experience, broadening their exposure to the public sector, and assuming substantial individual responsibility for their work. Selected fellows will explore and gain experience in a variety of practice areas over the course of the two-year fellowship.  Fellows generally complete three rotations through different areas of the office.

The Stephanie Lovell Honors (Fellowship) Program begins in September 2024.  All individuals invited to participate must commit to a two-year term and must take the bar exam in Massachusetts no later than July 2024.  The salary will be $69,300 per year.
