former paralegal

Q:I am a former paralegal as well as a former Albuquerque cop and former DEA special agent. I will be finishing law school in California and then be ready to take the New York bar. I would love to work at a District Attorney’s Office, but my problem is that my training has all been academic with no real hands on experience. I would like to know how to go about getting a position as an Assistant District Attorney office and whether my lack of hands on experience will hurt my chances.
