Twin Cities Diversity in Practice 1L Summer Rotation Clerkship

Briggs and Morgan, a prominent Midwest law firm with national and global reach, is seeking 1L applicants for the 2019 Twin Cities Diversity in Practice 1L Summer Rotation Clerkship. The purpose of the clerkship is to connect Diversity in Practice's "first-class corporate and law firm members with talented 1L students of color." Eligible applicants will have completed their first year of law school before the summer of 2019. 

The clerk will work as a summer associate at Briggs and Morgan for ten weeks beginning in late May.
