If you are a 3D or 4E with an interest in a JD alternative federal career, consider applying for the PMF program, a highly competitive, entry-level hiring program for the federal civil service. (With very rare exception, the PMF program will not lead to an attorney position.) A complete description of the program is available at the PMF website.
Please note the following: The PMF application timeline and deadlines have changed from years past. This year the application period is open from September 15-25, 2011. In addition to the completed application, PMF applicants need to be nominated by the school. If you are seeking a nomination, please set-up an appointment with the school’s nominating official, Astrid Schmidt King, Assistant Dean of Law Career Development, at firstname.lastname@example.org by Wednesday, September 14th.
