I already have my leave of absence form filled out and ready to go, but now I'm up to 7 interviews so far (for the PI fair) which is making me reconsider.
For public defender agencies, if you do a good job interning you won't get a firm offer (like a SA would) but you'll definitely be at the top of the resume pile. The Colorado PD, for the most part, hires former interns.
For DAs I think it is a little different since many require bar passage before you can even apply.
As far as nonprofits/legal aid organizations go, I would imagine that it could go either way since funding may be inconsistent.
