And knew more about Liberia than I picked up from listening to its interim president, this would be awesome:

The Government of Liberia

Research and Training Institute (JSI R&T) and the Center for Global Development (CGD), is seeking 3 young professionals with strong legal backgrounds to serve as Law Fellows working in the Ministry of Justice (MoJ) in Liberia for one year. This job presents a unique opportunity to work on substantive projects on a range of progressive legal issues, including ethics, policy, and criminal justice, among others.

You could be the "U.S. Department Of Justice Criminal Division Resident Legal Advisor In Monrovia, Liberia."

This position presumably pays like an AUSA, and they'll cover your relocation expenses.

Thanks for the heads-up. Unfortunately, while I might be able to finesse the above requirement for one year of experience, I doubt I could smooth talk my way past "at least four or five years of post J.D. experience."
