Solicitor General Fellowship
In the Fall of each year, the Office of the Solicitor General invites one or more recent law school graduates or judicial law clerks to serve for 12 months as a Solicitor General Fellow. SG Fellows assist staff in every facet of the work of the Office, including performing legal research, drafting briefs, appearing in court, and advising the Solicitor General and the Attorney General. The fellowship is ideal for talented young attorneys with a passion for the law who wish to pursue a career in appellate advocacy. The next openings for SG Fellowships are for September 2024.
The Office of the Solicitor General is also receiving applications for the positions of deputy and assistant solicitor general. Supervised by the Solicitor General and the Office’s civil and criminal chief deputies, deputy and assistant solicitors general brief and argue complex appeals in the Florida Supreme Court, the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals, and the U.S. Supreme Court. The Office’s attorneys also consult on strategic matters in state and federal trial courts and engage in dispositive motions practice. Our deputy and assistant solicitors general typically performed well in law school, clerked on a federal court or the Florida Supreme Court, and have demonstrated proficiency in writing appellate briefs and presenting oral argument.
