Hi everyone, I was wondering how feasible it was to work in a state or federal attorneys office right after law school?

The Department of Justice has a program for recent law school graduates. Here is the website:

Depends on the state. NY/MA/DC - most likely not. Random midwestern state? Maybe. Clerkships help a lot for this type of work too, but a lot of the AG/USAO jobs go to those with former prestigious big firm work or from DA's offices.
