Legal Positions

The Attorney General's Office is the most diverse law firm in the state. As can be seen from the division description pages, attorneys in the office handle a wide range of legal issues, at both the trial and appellate level, as well as other types of legal work for the State. Our office periodically recruits attorneys who are willing to assist us in fulfilling our mission.

The office provides two types of legal opportunities -- Attorneys and Law Clerks. In most instances, our Chief Deputy, Kevin Turner, screens and interviews applicants. Based on information collected during the interview process, employment recommendations are given to the Attorney General.

The office employs approximately 80 in-house attorneys and oversees the legal work of more than 100 attorneys across the state. The office has a number of division specialities ranging from criminal prosecution to civil constitutional defense to environmental law. All applicants must be members of the Alabama State Bar or are sitting for the bar exam.

Law Clerks
The Attorney General's Office regularly recruits law students for unpaid summer clerkships from The University of Alabama, Cumberland, Vanderbilt, Tulane, Emory, and Thomas Goode Jones law schools. We also accept resumes from law students at other schools. Each summer the office takes into service approximately 20 law clerks with terms set for the first or last half of the summer. Clerks are assigned to various divisions and receive a broad range of experience.
