Apply now to become a part of our highly regarded 2017 Minneapolis Summer Associate program. This clerkship opportunity is available through the firm’s participation in Twin Cities Diversity in Practice. First-year law students will have the opportunity to split their summer working at our firm and in the corporate law department of a participating corporation.
As a Summer Associate, you will develop advocacy skills by participating in a mock arbitration in our courtroom―guided step by step by some of our firm’s best advocates. By working on pro bono cases, you will further the cause of someone in need. You will have the opportunity to improve your writing by working on memoranda, briefs, pleadings, and discovery while receiving feedback from writing coaches and supervising attorneys. And you will learn about life beyond the classroom by accompanying our lawyers to trials, hearings, depositions, negotiations, and client meetings. You will do interesting work and will learn about our firm, its practice, and its lawyers by working side-by-side with our attorneys on real matters being handled by the firm. You will leave the firm with enhanced skills and greater knowledge and will be better prepared for practicing law.
Candidates who are interested in the position can also visit the Twin Cities Diversity in Practice website (www.diversityinpractice.org) for additional information and eligibility requirements.
