Some SLIP participants get job offers at the end of the summer, but I don't think they're spots in the Honors program specifically.
There's an awful lot of information on the web if you just look:http://www.justice.gov/oarm/arm/sp/spfaqs.htm#i
I. Offers for Permanent Employment Following Summer Law Internships
The Department permits components to issue offers for permanent employment following law school graduation to interns hired under the Summer Law Intern Program (SLIP) through a “funnel offer” directly into the Attorney General’s Honors Program for the following year. Unlike the practice in private law firms, funnel offers are issued sparingly to a relatively small number of SLIP participants. Interns working at the Department through student programs other than the formal SLIP are not eligible for funnel offers. Components can, at their discretion; issue funnel offers to SLIP participants prior to September 15th, with a response deadline of November 1st. SLIP participants who receive a funnel offer and intend to accept it must still apply to the Attorney General’s Honors Program and designate the issuing component as an employment preference, so that they are incorporated into the Department’s database for tracking and communications purposes
Any component participating in the Honors Program may issue a funnel offer to any intern who was hired through the SLIP, even if the student actually worked for a different component. For this reason, Honors Program applicants who participated in the SLIP may want to consider deferring final certification and submission of their Honors Program application until later in the application period, but prior to the application deadline, so that they can list the issuing component as an employment preference.
If you have already received a funnel offer at the time you complete your Honors Program application, be sure to list that component as an employment preference on your application. If you were an intern hired through the Summer Law Intern Program who has not received a funnel offer at the time you certify and submit your application, but think that you may receive a funnel offer, then list the component as an employment preference. You may list other components as employment preferences also; however, you must respond to a funnel offer by the appropriate deadline, even if you were selected for an Honors Program interview by another component. The Department will not extend the decision deadline on the funnel offer. If you elect to continue through the interview process, there is no guarantee that you will receive an offer from the component(s) that selected you for an interview or a second offer from the component that issued the funnel offer. If you accept a funnel offer, you will no longer be eligible to interview with any other component.
