Criminal Law work for me. Did an PD internship 1L summer, a DA internship 2L summer, now in my schools Prosecutor Clinic.
Also interested in this. Any other opinions?
I go to a iowa/uiuc/indiana/minn type school. Got interviews with all the usual places and recently accepted at a west coast office. Resume screamed DA/Govt work. internships with state AG office and various prosecutor offices 1L summer, throughout 2L year, 2L summer, and 3L year. Took every crim/trial ad class offered 2nd year.
i think the most important thing is just showing commitment to the job. a lot of students i know now who are gunning for DA/PD work have nothing on their resume related to that type of work, or, if they do, it doesnt show up until it seems like they are out of options.
