This will be the never ending thread for 3Ls (sorry no 0L, 1L, or 2Ls allowed) who are applying for public defender jobs. Start posting!

The Commonwealth of Northern Marianas (Saipan) is hiring public defenders. It is a min 2 year commitment. Plus side is that its a tropical island and the workload is super chill, downside is that it is as middle of nowhere as it gets. Hit me up if interested.

Oh sorry yes it's real, sorry I didn't check this thread, as I made a thread about it, but no one seemed interested

min years experience is a suggestion one of my friends got that exact job with just over 1.5 and only one felony trial, don't pay much attention to their flyer, they don't have their shit together enough to update their materials with every job posting

The commonwealth of Northern Marianas PDO (Saipan) is hiring. One of my friends finished a 2yr stint there and his replacement backed out so they are sort of desperate. It isnt a US state but I believe it would still be qualifying PSLF employment. They are looking for someone with 3 years crim law defense experience barred in any US state (but they hired my friend who only had 2) Min 2 year commitment. Pay is 45-65k.

Pros:
light work load

tropical paradise, travel by plane boat to court, swimming at beach during lunch

PDO will pay roundtrip relocation costs.


cons:
it is as middle of nowhere as it gets

typhoons can happen



hit me up if seriously interested
