Has anyone who went through the call back interview at Federal Defenders of San Diego heard anything? Have they made offers?

Thanks!


I don't think they have made offers yet.

Would you mind sharing if this was through email or another medium? Have they even made actual offers yet?

Are you a troll? Stop posting questions about LAS JRP over and over again. Most people here don't know about it. The starting salary is the same as for the criminal defense, I'm sure. You can find that on here.


This is a forum about public defenders, so any public defender questions, whether about purely adult criminal defense defense or not should be welcomed. If you don't have the answer to the question or would rather not read it keep scrolling.



Agreed, and I second the original question! Anyone have an idea of starting salary for JRP?

They emailed a bunch of us - the "waitlisted" folks. This was toward the end of March-ish. I know a colleague from my school got an offer and has accepted, so offers have been made. That's why I keep referring to those they emailed as "waitlisted." :roll:

Appears that LAS has contacted some but not everyone's references - perhaps depending on when the interviews were conducted? Wonder if they'll continue reaching out, or if the remaining e-mail group has already been divided or ranked and they're just waiting to see what total numbers will be....

Is that based on that previous message that was posted? I read that as his/her contacts were called shortly after the January interview. I could be mistaken, though!

based on what seems to have been the original question: "I know people have asked before, but has anyone waiting to hear from LAS in April had their contacts contacted? Or are we assuming they're doing that in the beginning of April before they make offers?"

Hey there!

Yes. I'm the one who wrote before. They emailed about 65 people (they forgot to conceal the names and email addresses, #whoops). It is my understanding that those people had their references contacted already, and "remaining hiring decisions for the Criminal Defense Practice 2015 Class will be made after April 1st when City and State funding budgets have been finalized." So we are just waiting for the yay or nay. We will be "notified when any decision has been made on your application to the CDP 2015 Class."

Hope that helps.

Stay strong!

If it's any consolation, I was one of the people who received the email in March, and my references haven't been contacted to the best of my knowledge. I have no idea what to expect or whether this is a bad sign.

Nope. They usually make offers pretty late in the game it seems.

No, after my hiring conference, I was told to call in today after 10 AM, and one of the guys I interviewed with let me know I didn't make the cut.

SD is super competitive, so I'm guessing they want a bit of both? I hear they don't even take the time to send you rejection emails. Haha. =0

I'm waiting - but they never called references. Last thing they did was sending me an email asking me to fill out employment application. Late March.
