Calling all recent law school graduates who are bar qualified in Washington state and seeking to get courtroom experience, the King County Prosecuting Attorney's Office has opportunities for several entry-level positions currently open in their Criminal Division.
The Criminal Division of the King County Prosecuting Attorney's Office is looking for several highly motivated attorneys to join our office as a contract deputy assistant attorney (DPAA).
The mission of the King County Prosecuting Attorney's Office (PAO) is to do Justice. The hallmarks of service in the Office are Integrity, Compassion, Leadership and Professionalism. We exercise the power given to us by the people with fairness and humility. We serve our diverse community, support victims and families, and hold individuals accountable. We develop innovative and collaborative solutions for King County and the State of Washington.
We value diversity and strive to hire a workforce that reflects the community that we serve. It is essential to our mission that we create and maintain an office that is diverse and inclusive. We encourage you to watch our six minute values video: https://www.kingcounty.gov/depts/prosecutor/jobs.aspx All PAO employees are expected to participate in PAO equity work and attending equity trainings and discussions. PAO employees are expected to comply with equity and social justice principles, and to work with PAO colleagues and management to identify opportunities for improvement.
KCPAO deputies cover work at courthouses in Redmond, Kent and Seattle. All deputies are expected to be able to work at any of those locations. The courts are currently allowing virtual appearances for most calendars due to COVID-19, but in-person appearances will be necessary for select hearings as well as for jury trials, once the courts decide to resume jury trials. Employees will be provided with a County issued laptop and must maintain a workspace with an internet connection where they can reliably perform work and remain available and responsive during scheduled work hours. Employees must reside in WA state and within a reasonable distance to their King County worksite to respond to workplace reporting requirements. There will be situations where the employee is required to report to a County worksite. Please note that when an employee conducts work that is likely to bring them in contact with another individual, safety precautions are required by the department in alignment with the Public Health Directive from the Seattle & King County Public Health Officer.
Application Materials: Applicants must complete the application form, answer supplemental questions and attach a resume and cover letter addressed to the Hiring Committee on the application website.

Munger, Tolles & Olson offers a 1L summer associate program for diverse law students.
The program is named in memory of the firm’s partner Jay M. Fujitani, who was a strong advocate for diversity in the legal profession.
1L Fujitani Scholars are full participants in the MTO summer associate program. 1L Scholars are given meaningful work to provide them with a realistic sense of law practice at our firm. They work closely with attorneys in our various practice areas, and are encouraged to participate in firm life through our weekly attorney lunches, training programs, social events, and practice group meetings. Recognizing that first-year law students have one year less academic experience, 1L Scholars receive enhanced mentoring to ensure they have a productive summer, including a fully paid opportunity to attend the Leadership Council on Legal Diversity’s 1L Summit Program.
1L Scholars are required to spend a minimum of eight weeks and may stay a maximum of ten weeks in our office. 1L Scholars are paid the same weekly salary as our 2L and 3L summer program participants ($3,654 per week).
Split Summer Opportunity
1L Scholars also have the option to work for up to four weeks: (1) at a law-related non-profit organization of their choice, or (2) in the legal department of one of a select roster of current MTO clients. Those choosing this option must work at MTO for the first eight weeks of the summer. 1L Scholars will continue to receive their weekly salary from the firm while working at their non-profit or in-house placement, for a maximum of twelve total weeks of pay for those choosing the split summer option.
In 2021, Munger Tolles is pleased to offer 1L Scholar positions in our Los Angeles and San Francisco offices.
Following firm policy and the guidance of public health officials, Munger Tolles will determine whether the program will be held virtually or in person closer to the summer program start date.
All applicants must be first-year law students in good standing pursuing a JD at an ABA-accredited law school. Successful candidates will have a record of academic achievement, employment, and community service indicating great potential to excel in the legal profession and to contribute to the diversity of Munger Tolles and the legal community. In the past, candidates have included members of racial or ethnic minority groups, first-generation college or law school students, veterans, people with disabilities, LGBTQ students, and students from disadvantaged socioeconomic backgrounds.
To apply, please complete our online application and provide a cover letter, resume, law school and undergraduate transcripts, personal statement, and contact information for two references. If you are unable to use the online application, please send your materials by email to email@example.com.
We encourage you to submit your materials as soon as possible after the application period begins on December 1, 2020. Although we will accept applications until February 14, 2021, we consider applications on a rolling basis and our limited number of positions may be full before that time.
