Post-Law School Employment

Just a little advice for those getting out of law school and looking for employment. Obviously, it's going to depend on your opportunities, location, connections, etc. But, if you are looking for litigation experience from Day 1 then look at becoming a Prosecutor.

I am a former Deputy Prosecuting Attorney for Pulaski County. I have spent time in Pulaski County District Court, Little Rock District Court, Sherwood District Court, North Little Rock District Court, Jacksonville District Court, 2nd Division Circuit Court, 7th Division Circuit Court, and 1st Division Circuit Court. I spent over 3.5 years at the Prosecutor's Office and learned a great deal. You have to think on your feet quite a bit. It can be challenging and rewarding at times. There is no better place than the Prosecutor's Office to get litigation experience right out of law school and if there is somewhere better, please please let me know! I would tell anyone if they want to get great litigation experience in a 3-4 year span, spend hours and hours in a courtroom, handle 1000s of cases, handles 100s if not 1000s of bench trials, and litigate about 10 Jury Trials then go get a job as a Prosecutor right out of law school. You will end up with lifelong friends and get invaluable experience. It was a great time and you meet great people on the defense and state sides.
