I just finished 1L and am gunning for a prosecutor job in a major city (NY preferably). For those who have gone this route: outside of getting as much experience in a DA office during law school as possible/moot court etc, is there an activity or nonobvious thing that you feel makes someone a stronger candidate?
I'm shooting for some competitive offices, so I'm just wondering if y'all have any input on what DA officers love on a resume.
Former NY Ada who conducted OCI interviews:
Evidence, crim. pro, trial ad, mock trial, moot court.
Any group that had a criminal law element (one guy I interviewed was in a group for law students who want to be prosecutors)
Best bet is internship in the office you want to work at and do such an amazing job and be well liked because those references carry the most weight.
