I worked at Cook County State's Attorney (Less than a year)
You get first-hand experience with court calls on a daily basis, you'll be working with State Attorneys who can provide you with you great mentorship and you'll see how judges respond to cases. You get to perform a lot of different tasks, and it's a great learning experience if you're thinking about a career in criminal and government law.
low pay, volunteer work, you're experience depends on how the attorneys treat you, some can be nice and others ......
I applied online. The process took 7+ months. I interviewed at Cook County State's Attorney (Chicago, IL) in November 2015.
I applied in early October and did not interview until just before Thanksgiving. Second interview was in February. I received a letter in mid-May stating whether I had a position. The process is very slow, and you are essentially told the CCSA Office will not respond to questions about the application or interview process, even if you could figure out who to ask.
