DOJ Honors Program 2024-25

Just thought I would start this thread for anyone who is interested/has questions. It looks like they released the participating components today.

There’s 25(!) slots in the Antitrust Division. That’s way more than the year I participated.

Really significant drop in EOIR spots, and pretty substantial cuts to Tax and USAOs. This feels like one of the largest reductions in recent years. I wonder why

I would wonder if the DOJ’s significant budget cut affected its hiring next year. I’d imagine a Trump administration might engineer a broader hiring freeze. Not sure why EOIR is seeing a big drop, considering the issues with the border/immigration.

My understanding is that USAOs have been facing budget cuts.

The Congressional budget passed a few months ago + executive order bumping locality pay by 5.2% really hurt federal agencies, including the DOJ: https://federalnewsnetwork.com/budget/2 ... or-others/
