Attorneys develop legislative drafting skills within the Office over a period of years. When vacancies occur in the legal staff of the Office, new
attorneys are usually chosen from among applicants who have superior law school records, demonstrate an ability to work with clients and Office employees, and have an interest in serving on a career basis.
The support staff of the Office is composed of an Office Manager, senior staff assistants, staff assistants, and a receptionist.
Since the Office provides technical legal services on a nonpolitical and confidential basis, and must be impartial in appearance as well as in fact, active public
participation in political matters is regarded as a disqualification for appointment or retention. No change in personnel of the Office has resulted from any change in political control of the Senate.
Vacancies for attorney or support staff positions are listed on USAJOBS (www.usajobs.gov). Please follow the directions there to apply for any job listed.
