SAUSA vs. PD? Have to decide

Postby Anonymous User » Mon Feb 05, 2018 3:47 pm

I can work at a USAO or at a local PD office as an attorney for half a year. Can anyone help me understand the differences?

One is a Federal prosecutor, and the other is a State indigent defense attorney.

This post is confusing. Why will you be working there for only half a year? Are you still in school? Are you more interested in prosecution or criminal defense? I think USAO would likely open more doors, but may also close more doors if you're gunning for criminal defense. Again, it's not clear what sort of information you're looking for
