rightgolefts Posted October 15, 2015 Share Posted October 15, 2015 Hi All,First time poster, what a great and helpful website! I am currently a litigation attorney in the public sector. I'm hoping to apply in the next application cycle but I was wondering if any of you had any thoughts on how this type of work experience would be viewed by top MPA/MPP programs. It seems like this is a different trajectory into these programs than most. My goal in getting the degree would be to get the training to enter a management position in a legal non-profit or work on the policy side of criminal justice reform (currently working on the ground level in criminal justice, not seeing a lot of reform...) I see a number of attorneys transition into these roles without the MPA or MPP degree but I feel like having the education would be pretty important in order to be the most effective in these positions.Thanks!
