Attorney resumes are accepted by the Riverside County Human Resources Department on a continuing basis. Resumes are accepted both from attorneys and those awaiting the results of the most recent Bar examination. The District Attorney's Office retains the most promising resumes sent directly to us and forwards them to the Human Resources office when hiring is imminent.
Law Student Applications
The district attorney recruits first- and second- year law students for summer externships and third-year law students for post-bar clerking positions. He seeks students with a demonstrated commitment to excellence and community service. The district attorney believes excellence in prosecution can only be achieved by ethical, assertive, articulate, persuasive advocates with high levels of initiative, creativity, maturity, work ethic, and good judgment and who are willing to use those abilities for the public good. Applications are sought from students who have had an active participation in law school and law-related activities and who are committed to excellence in accepting personal responsibility for cases of importance.
On-campus interviews are normally scheduled at most Southern California accredited law schools. Each January and February the office participates in the Northern California Public Interest Public Career Day (typically held at UC Hastings) and the Southern California Public Interest/Public Sector Career Day (typically held at UCLA). Students attending other law schools or that are unable to attend a career fair are invited to submit their resumes for externships to the extern recruitment coordinator at externshipprogram@RivCoDA.org.
