    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7+ months. I interviewed at Cook County State's Attorney (Chicago, IL) in November 2015.

    Interview

    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.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked a hypothetical ethics question regarding evidence obtained from an unlawful search and whether I would still use the evidence at trial.   Answer Question
