Prosecution market in Utah

Postby caveman2 » Wed Mar 13, 2013 3:10 am

I am a 2L at Michigan State Law but grew up in Utah and would like to practice as a prosecutor in Utah after graduation. There's hardly any info on here about the legal market in Utah, and I was wondering if any practicing criminal lawyers in Utah could give any insight on the market there right now as far as jobs after graduation (or even just criminal internships for this summer if you know anything). I've applied to several prosecutors for a summer internship, but haven't heard anything back yet. Even if I get a prosecution job for the summer, I'm just wondering about what the future will probably look like for me next year after graduation. Like, what kind of salary do ADA's get in Salt Lake county? Or in other counties? Does the SL DA usually make job offers to its interns, or at least give them first priority? What about other offices, like the AG? Are internships with them substantive, or not so much? What can I do to make myself the most appealing candidate? Any info on anything related to any of this would be very much appreciated.

When I applied to jobs--I'm a 3L with an ASA job post grad--I didn't come across any office in Utah that would hire graduates without first having passed the bar.

Well as far as staying in the same place forever, that's what I want to do as well. But it sounds like you guys are only relaying rumors and don't really have the info I'm looking for. Please, people who actually live and work there, I want to hear from you!
