Description

The Shelby County District Attorney’s Office is looking for attorneys who believe in equal justice under the law.

Based in Memphis, TN, the Shelby County District Attorney is the top law enforcement officer for a county of almost one million people.  The office is now hiring licensed attorneys with litigation experience, particularly in the areas of criminal justice, civil rights, or both.  This is an opportunity to get in on the ground floor of a transformative reform effort to remake the office in line with best practices across the country.  We are seeking candidates with a range of experience, from recent law school graduates to veteran attorneys.

Specific priorities of Shelby County’s new District Attorney include:

  • Prioritizing violent crime by empowering prosecutors to use their discretion to seek community-based alternatives to expensive, sometimes counterproductive prison sentences for non-violent offenses.
  • Establishing a Post-Conviction Fairness Unit to review prior cases for possible errors, wrongful convictions, and wrongful sentences.
  • Promoting Public Safety by using innovative evidence-based best practices from around the country to prevent youth violence and reduce recidivism.
  • Fixing the broken bail system to ensure that poverty alone does not equate to additional unfair punishment.
  • Delivering juvenile justice in a more fair, humane, and age-appropriate way, beginning with reducing the number of juveniles in our community who are transferred to the adult system.
  • Reigning in runaway costs of incarceration by requiring prosecutors to provide the judge an estimate of the cost of incarceration at sentencing.
  • Developing a restorative justice program for property crimes that allows victims to participate directly in restitution.

If you want to be part of an organization dedicated to making the community safer by making our system fairer, then we invite you to submit your letter of interest, resume, and references to recruitment@scdag.com.

You must possess law degree from an accredited school of law and have a current Tennessee law license (in good standing), anticipate licensure upon the release of the July 2022 bar exam, meet the requirements for comity admission pursuant to Tennessee Supreme Court Rule 7, article V, and/or possess the requisite credentials to reasonably and promptly “waive in” to Tennessee licensure.

Applicants with prior courtroom experience will be strongly favored for Assistant District Attorney roles, although a range of other positions and opportunities will be available.

An equal opportunity employer, we are particularly interested in candidates who will increase diversity of all kinds throughout our office.

We may be unable respond to every inquiry and will contact you for an interview only if we are able to move your application forward for consideration.  Successful applicants will be subject to Shelby County Government’s routine hiring procedures and protocols before receiving an offer of employment.  Positions will remain open until filled.

Please email your letter of interest, resume and references to recruitment@scdag.com.
