My apologies, but I'm not up-to-date on the lingo. What is HYS or CCN?
However, generally, yes, I've encountered out-of-state hires at both the DA's office and AG's office, though it's obviously easier to begin and maintain those all-important relationships if you are nearby. Particuarly for the DA's office. Which is why I chose DU over CU.
I got my summer job at the AG's office via OCI (see, I do know some acronyms!) and the fact that I'd already met some people in that office prior to and during law school so they were able to speak up on my behalf during the interview process.
Finally someone not obsessed with the forum lingo - what a relief. I accidentally confused troll for lurker in my first post a few days ago. Oops!
HYS= Harvard, Yale, Stanford
CCN= Columbia, Chicago, NYU
Thanks for the perspective. If there are some out-of-state people in the office, why not me, right? Very helpful since they don't have much info on their website about people other than the AG and DA.
