I contacted one of my ex-deans who is at Florida Coastal. She gave me some great advice. Apparently there isn't too much competition to become a SA or PD..

I can't wait for it. I am actually excited about it. I noticed that some SA and PD offices start hiring in the fall so I am going to start inquiring now and asking general questions like "what would make a candidate most competitive" and stuff like that so I can start networking. The only thing that sucks is I don't have moot court or law journal experience. I wasn't able to try out for them because my wife was sick and I missed an entire month of school to take care of her. i still passed but I didn't have any extra time to do the extra work.

Oh, not scared at all. In fact I like it. However, I would also like to practice law. I have a retired Major at my school who is a dean of support staff. He was in the Marines and had his J.D. but NEVER practiced in the military. That is something I don't want.

Jacy,
Thanks, I am flexible. We do have a Third Year practice called 711 license. I hope to be doing that this summer and next year. The only thing that sucks about trying to do what I want to do is that it is hard to know where to sign up for the bar if I don't know where I am going. I REALLLLLY want to go to the Jacksonville FL area. I love it there. I am not too picky though...... I know that it is hard to go to FL..

Jacy,
Thanks for the response. I am a 2.5L... (Sounds so much better than 2L. I feel closer to graduating) I plan on interning this summer at the local SA or PD office. I was clerking for Judges over the past year however I had to quit because I enrolled into ROTC and now I likely can't participate. I am hoping to start making my package and getting experience in areas to help me in the SA or PD job hunt. I have found more info here than I have at my school.

I am just asking here as I have always received good info on here. And it goes without saying that the Marines are marines first, lawyers second.

O.k. I want to be a Prosecutor or Public Defender. I originally wanted to go back in the military however I suffer from Acid Reflux and that is a permanent disqualifier for military service.
Anyway, because I want to be a Prosecutor or PD and do not, I repeat, I DO NOT want to live in the Southern Illinois Area, what is the easiest way to become a SA or PD in TX, FL, AZ, CA, or something like that. I want to live somewhere warm. My career services office is not too helpful when dealing with leaving the area..
How competitive is it to get a job that far away from Southern Illinois.

Anyone?

Not to Hijack this thread but do Army JAGs have the mentality of Soldiers First Lawyers Second? Do they have to fight on the front lines. I don't mind doing so however before applying for something I like to know what I am getting into.
