2023 2L Summer Associate Opportunities in Minneapolis

July 14, 2022


Robins Kaplan is a national powerhouse firm dedicated to high-stakes litigation and trial work. We represent both plaintiffs and defendants and have a varied client base that ranges from individuals to small companies to Fortune 100 corporations. We helped pioneer high-stakes contingency-fee litigation and recovered well in excess of $10 billion for many clients over the last 25 years.

For over 80 years, Robins Kaplan has been a passionate defender of the right to trial by jury. We are regularly recognized on The American Lawyer’s A-List for our core values, unique characteristics, and exceptional results. We have a nationally recognized pro bono program, an acclaimed attorney training program, and received the ABA’s prestigious Golden Hammer Award for our commitment to diversity.

We have designed our summer program with two primary goals in mind—introducing you to our firm and what life as an Associate is like, and helping you improve as legal writers, thinkers, and advocates. As a Summer Associate, you will:

  • Develop advocacy skills by participating in a mock arbitration in our courtroom— guided by some of our firm’s most skilled trial lawyers;
  • Help ensure that everyone has access to justice by working on pro bono cases
  • Solve client problems: work with our attorneys on substantive assignments related to cases being handled by the firm;
  • Improve your writing through our writing coaching and mentorship program;
  • Learn about law beyond the classroom by accompanying our lawyers to trials, hearings, depositions, negotiations, and client meetings
