Division of Corporation Finance — Attorney Openings

April 8, 2015

Disclosure Review Program

We are not accepting applications for attorney positions in the Division’s Disclosure Review Program. 

The Division of Corporation Finance assists the Commission in executing its responsibility to oversee corporate disclosure of important information to the investing public. The Division's staff routinely reviews documents that publicly-held companies are required to file with the Commission. The documents include registration statements; annual and quarterly filings; proxy materials sent to shareholders before an annual meeting; and filings related to mergers and acquisitions. These documents disclose information about the companies' financial condition and business practices to help investors make informed investment decisions. Through the Division's selective review process, the staff monitors compliance with disclosure requirements and seeks to improve the quality of the disclosure. The staff also provides companies with assistance interpreting the Commission's rules and recommends to the Commission new rules for adoption.

For additional information about the work of Disclosure Review Program, please refer to the summary of our Filing Review Process.

The Division recruits entry-level and experienced candidates. Applicant requirements:

  • J.D. from an accredited law school
  • Active member of the bar

All candidates must possess excellent writing, communication, and analytical skills. Demonstrated experience with or knowledge of the statutes and regulations administered by the Commission or other federal agencies are especially desirable.
