The United States Attorney’s Office for the Western District of Wisconsin is looking for a highly-qualified and experienced prosecutor to fill a full-time position as an Assistant United States Attorney (AUSA) in its Criminal Division.
This position is located in Madison, Wisconsin.
The AUSA hired for this position will prosecute a broad array of federal crimes.

AUSAs write their own District and Appellate Court briefs and strong writing skills are required.
All initial attorney appointments to the Department of Justice are made on a 14 month (temporary) basis pending favorable adjudication of a background investigation. Temporary appointments may be extended or made permanent without further competition.
Responsibilities will increase and assignments will become more complex as your training and experience progress.
