Office of the Attorney General attorney positions are non-classified — they are exempt from overtime and the state personnel system. Attorney positions receive competitive benefits, including health, dental, disability, life insurance, retirement, and paid vacation, sick and holiday leave. Employment at the Department of Law is contingent upon passing a thorough background check, being in good standing with the Bar of the State of Colorado, and not having disciplinary action by any other bar to which you are admitted to practice law. Attorneys serve at the pleasure of the Attorney General.
Applicants for attorney positions may submit a resume and cover letter directly to the hiring attorney, as indicated on the job announcement. Your cover letter should indicate your bar status in Colorado as well as any specific areas of law you are particularly interested in, or in which you have special expertise or training.
