The Office prosecutes cases in Oswego County Court as well as two City Courts, 22 Town Courts and three Village Courts. There is no division of the office into departments or bureaus because of the size of the office. The prosecutors have daily contact with each other. There are four full-time prosecutors in addition to the District Attorney and three part-time prosecutors. The part-time prosecutors’ primary responsibility is to prosecute all cases in the local courts. The full-time prosecutors’ primary responsibility is to prosecute felonies. Students will be asked to prepare appellate briefs, conduct research, prepare responses to discovery and other motions, and to become involved in ongoing investigations as the need arises. There will be opportunities to be present at preliminary felony hearings, calendar calls, and trials, always accompanied by the prosecutor handling that particular case.
