Go to a truly national school or the best school in the region you want to practice in. Look into interning with the DA or PDs office while in school. In this economy, that's usually the way to get hired with one of these offices.

Every law school will have plenty of opportunities to do crim law. Don't worry about specialties. You don't major in law school.

This. That being said, Ohio State has the guy that revised most of the Ohio criminal code, perhaps the foremost national expert on sentencing, and Dressler.
