    Pros

    Great, high profile cases, and excellent legal work experience. If planning on going to law school, working here is a very good set up.

    Cons

    Bureaucracy can get in the way of effective investigation of cases. As a paralegal/trial preparation assistant there are not a lot of non-law jobs that will benefit from the skills gained at the DA's Office
